- An outline for funding adaptation and disasters management schemes - by Dr. Jan Kunnas, Sustainable Bioenergy group, Department of Biological and Environmental Science, University of Jyvaskyla, Finland. "This paper develops further a proposal to split continued climate negotiations into two separate blocks. The first block deals with historical emissions of greenhouse gases, including a mutual debt cancellation. The second block deals with future emissions and how to finance adaption to climate change. Following the polluter pays-principle, the funds should be collected in proportion to the responsibility for proceeding climate change and redistributed in proportion to the needs for adaption and management of climate-related risks. The system of fund collection after the cut-off point could be taken from Oliver Tickell's Kyoto2-proposal, which proposes a system for levying climate funds via fossil-fuel production permits. Finally, some incentives to join the proposed scheme are suggested." Published in the Climate 2011 virtual conference, 7 November 2011.

- Cameron′s ′green growth′ policy looks naive today. It will look cynical in 2027 - the UK's promised 50% cut to greenhouse gases means little while rich countries continue to outsource pollution to poorer ones, George Monbiot writes in the Guardian. The answer? Kyoto2, of course ...
- Stop the sooty show - Oliver Tickell argues that while progress on CO2 is stymied, the world should take immediate action to reduce emissions of 'black carbon'. BC is the most important agent of global warming after CO2, and comes mainly from forest and land clearance, biomass burning, charcoal production, domestic wood and coal stoves, dirty old diesel and 2-stroke engines, and industry. But unlike CO2, most BC emissions take place in the developing world, with Latin America and Africa leading the emissions field. It's time to drop the old rhetoric of blame, and move into a new era of cooperation in the global interest. Published in the New Statesman, 17 May 2010.
