It's long overdue for TEQs (or a comparable system) to be implemented. Paris and all the talking shops gone before would have been unnecessary if an emissions entitlement system had been put in place at the appropriate time.

Suggestions from supporters of such schemes for furthering their progress, please. I will be emailing Irish TDs and MEPs for a start.

Hear hear, emordnilap! You may well be interested in the blog post I posted today, on what seem to me to be the two leading alternatives to the UN process. I'd much appreciate your thoughts there.

With regard to your specific question, a number of courses of action are laid out here (you're already taking one of them, thanks!), and right now, emails to Avaaz in support of TEQs would be especially welcome, as per our latest newsletter.

Best,
Shaun

Here's GlobalCapCarbon's article re their submission to Ireland's citizens' assembly, which has been asking for submissions on "How the State can make Ireland a leader in tackling climate change".

Some very interesting submissions but a large percentage suggest very restricted areas of improvement, often associated with their personal lives (such as improved cycling facilities or shifting wind farms offshore, out of their sight) or single issues - plus the usual dregs of misinformed opinions.

A form of TEQs/C&S covers all the bases, with no need to micromanage.
