As the world’s eyes turn to Madrid for the United Nations Climate Change Conference, Austin-based Texas Interfaith Center for Public Policy/Texas Impact is sending to the Chronicle daily dispatches from the conference.
In this latest video, Gilles Dufrasne (Carbon Market Watch) and Erika Lennon (Center for International Environmental Law) explain the theory behind carbon markets, and question if it's just allowing rich countries to do business as usual.
