If you’re like many Albertans, you’re probably asking yourself some pretty important questions about greenhouse gas and climate change.
- What will Copenhagen mean?
- Why is cap and trade controversial?
- What are other places doing to address climate change through law and policy?
Or, maybe you’re not even sure which questions to ask. Whatever the case, let the Environmental Law Centre (ELC) get you started.
Our first session provides a lay audience with the basics. We begin by defining terms: words like “offsets” and “sequestration” that made the newspapers before the law dictionary. Adam will explain options for reducing greenhouse gas, highlighting the difference between “market” schemes and more established means of environmental protection. With choice of tools in hand, we look to who is using what: provincially, nationally, and internationally. Participants should leave understanding the big picture: the role of international agreements, the consequences of emissions trading, and the impact of patchwork law on a global issue.
