Back to Signatory List


Good to hear from you.

I would be delighted to support C&C as a proposal to UNFCCC as a logical framework for sharing the responsibility of controlling climate change world-wide.

"One approach to reducing GHG emissions is known as ‘Contraction and Convergence’. This involves emissions from industrialised nations reducing (contracting) and emissions from all nations converging to an overall target consistent with stabilising GHG concentrations in the atmosphere. Over time, emissions would contract and converge to an equal share per person. To achieve this equitable distribution, each of us in the UK would need to reduce our average annual carbon dioxide emissions from 10 tonnes to two tonnes. Contraction and Convergence is the science-based, global climate-policy framework, proposed to the United Nations since 1990 by the Global Commons Institute.
It is supported by many climate change scientists and policy makers, including the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution." See here & here
