Paris climate summit: UN negotiations 'need redesign' - BBC News
[ only bottom up works ... till the tide is big enough. same with health and fitness (which in part has to be about looking good/fit). self-esteem. ] The UN climate negotiations are heading for failure and need a major redesign if they are to succeed, scientists say. The pledges that individual countries are offering ahead of the Paris climate summit in December are too entrenched in self interest instead of being focussed on a common goal. The researchers say the science of cooperation is being ignored. Instead, they say the negotiations should focus on a common commitment on the global price of carbon. This means countries would agree on a uniform charge for carbon pollution, a scheme that would encourage polluters to reduce their emissions. The comments from researchers at the University of Cambridge, UK, University of Maryland, US, and University of Cologne, in Germany, are published in the journal Nature. //&! bbc.in/1jYOUtz

How can plastic bag addiction be cured? - BBC News
From Monday large shops in England will charge 5p for each plastic bag. But how did shoppers get so used to free carrier bags in the first place, asks Chris Stokel-Walker. //&! bit.ly/1RgOTfj - Perhaps the crisis of conscience has eased and people have got used to the idea of their wastefulness again. The charge is clearly needed. But will it work? And does it go far enough? [ 5p isn't a pain, 50p probably. because then its seen (perceived) as overpriced/rip-off. but the consumer does not see, is not aware of the actual current cost and long-term cost to the environment, ecology, and knock-on economic damage of cleaning it up in 20-30 years because we have to to save the planet! where are the behavioural economic experiments when you need them? ] - make video arguing for a 50p price tag and study from dan ariely to conduct such a study.
