It aims to be:

The Kyoto package of measures is now available in its definitive form in the book Kyoto2 - how to manage the global greenhouse (Zed Books, July 2008). The Kyoto2 summary, as published, is available on this website.

Also see the In the media section of this website for links to articles about Kyoto2, book reviews, etc.

The original Kyoto2 paper, available in 3 parts, is also available on this website, but has been superceded in various respects and should not be considered definitive.

  1. Kyoto2 summary (as published in Kyoto2 the book)
  2. Existing approaches to regulating greenhouse gases (version of 31 January 2007)
  3. The Kyoto2 proposals (version of 31 January 2007)

Two Yahoo groups have been set up for Kyoto2. The Newsletter group is for infrequent one-way announcements and information, and the Discussion group is intended to facilitate exchange of ideas and information, and to allow members to raise questions and criticisms.
