NOAH's draft proposal for a Danish Climate Law

Draft for a Danish Climate Law by NOAH Friends of the Earth Denmark 2011

How could a Danish climate law look like and what should it contain? A concrete attempt to formulate an outline of a bill (without an accompanying explanatory memorandum). The original sketch was prepared by Professor LL.D. Ellen Margrethe Basse, Professor in Environmental Law at Business and Social Science, Aarhus University, Head of the Climate Secretariat & President of the Climate Panel, Aarhus University (2008 - 2010) and is subsequently processed by NOAH. The proposal is NOAH's bid for a Danish climate bill.

Greenhouse Development Rights – Explained in four, easy steps (2 MB)

Greenhouse Development Rights (GDR) is a proposal from Paul Baer and Tom Athanasiou, Ecoequity Institute, comprising fast and steep reductions in the rich countries similar to those suggested by Klima SOS. But GDR also suggests methods to compensate for the historic emissions before 1990 in a way that is not included in Klima SOS' proposal - and even less in Denmark's and EU's current reduction targets.

 

A Greenhouse Development Rights analysis of Denmark’s role in a climate constrained world

Just before COP15 in Copenhagen EcoEquity published a GDR-analysis of Denmark's roles and obligations in a situation with a just global climate agreement. As is known the COP15 (and COP 16, 17 and 18) ended with a result that was far removed from a just agreement.

Report on how the EU can reach 40% GHG-reductions by 2020.

A study prepared by Stockholm Environment Institute in partnership with Friends of the Earth Europe shows that emission reductions of at least 40% below 1990 levels within Europe by 2020, and cuts of 90% by 2050, are possible.
