California's Carbon Trading and other False Climate SolutionsFalse Climate Solutions is the topic of a talk and photo presentation by Jeff Conant of the Global Justice Ecology Project. He will speak at the Redwoods Presbyterian Church, 110 Magnolia Avenue, Larkspur on Thursday, June 9 at 7:30 PM.
Jeff will explain how California's recent carbon-trading deal with Mexico is leading to displacement of the poor; how tiny chipboard houses are being built on steep deforested hillsides and called "sustainable" rural cities designed to "combat the dispersion and marginalization of local peoples"; and how African palm plantations in Honduras are fueling increased repression of peasant movements.

He has published articles and contributed to reports on water privatization, resource colonization, food sovereignty, ecological sanitation, environmental injustice, and related issues. He is a coordinating committee member of La Red VIDA (the InterAmerican Network for the Defense of the Right to Water), a permaculturalist, and sits on advisory boards of several non-profit organizations.*
