I set up this website as a place to collect things I’ve written, but the most recent post is from the end of 2011. I haven’t stopped writing – since October 2008 I’ve been spending more time looking at REDD (reduced emissions from deforestation and forest degradation). You can read more about my work on REDD on redd-monitor.org:
CDM does not reduce emissions. Leaving fossil fuels in the ground does
CDM proponents reluctantly admit the truth about carbon offsets: they don’t reduce emissions.
