False Solutions: Pitfalls of Emissions Trading Risks of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Geo-Engineering

Lyda Fernanda Forero: "They are using a fake argument. It's to sell the right to pollute. And instead of that we should say: No pollution. So, by creating these we say: Yes, ok, it's fine if you pollute as long as you pay. And that is really complicated and is taking out of the discussion the real problem, which are these emissions."
