Climate Change and Prospects for Sustainability

(p.423) 25 Climate Change and Prospects for Sustainability
Foundations of Environmental Sustainability

Thomas E. Lovejoy

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the meaning of sustainability in the face of climate change. It discusses how we can begin stemming and then reducing the tide of carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere. One way is to pay landowners to grow trees and maintain the carbon stock of a forest, while allowing them to use the forest for anything else that would not affect its carbon content.

Keywords:   conservation, environmental protection, sustainable development, carbon dioxide
