We are reading Carbon Pricing: A critical perspective for community resistance by Indigenous Environmental Network, 2017. It’s a free PDF download, about 50 pages. It’s a critique of why they don’t support carbon pricing as a viable solution. We try to reach for and understand conservatives but how about the progressive left? Interesting to discuss.
