As politicians and corporations are increasingly responding to the public’s demand for action on sustainability and climate change, certain voices and solutions are being left out of the debate. This debate will bring together critics of carbon trading with those who advocate carbon trading as a viable tool for addressing climate change in what is sure to be a thought-provoking and challenging panel.
