of carbon market mechanisms. And they're also saying that the 'developed' countries must take immediate mitigation and adjustment measures and 'cease and desist', as it were, in their over-production, over-consumption, over-exploitation and general self-centered greed. As I understand it.

They say such carbon market mechanisms as proposed won't work, will become corrupted or simply business as usual. Perhaps, I think, they could well have a place in developed world markets, strictly applied. But I'm afraid much more authoritarian, draconian, if you like, measures will very quickly be applied become, in the minds of those who know they're (ir)responsible, necessary, in order to protect their ill-gotten 'gains' against what they'll perceive as evil Mother Earth and, uh, angry indigenous communities...
