A Global Consumer-Driven Low-Carbon Investment Fund for Development and Adaptation

Authors: Anthony J. Webster

A successful response to climate change offers the greatest public health opportunity of the century, but intervention is needed to prevent catastrophic climate change and to realise this tantalising possibility. A global investment fund for development, R&D, and low-carbon investments can succeed, with long-term dividends used for adaptation to the climate. It can be funded by numerous small voluntarily paid levies on purchases and transactions, encouraged by global icons, and paid by multinational companies that benefit from good publicity and growing markets. A grassroots response can start arbitrarily small, but aspire to include all transactions.
