and Carbon Trade Watch are pleased to announce the 2nd edition of Hoodwinked in the Hothouse: False Solutions to Climate Change.
This 28-page booklet provides a close-to-comprehensive overview of

climate change, from Clean Coal to Biomass incineration, providing an

With the incredible pace of the climate policy debate, the 2nd edition
provides key updates to crucial topics like REDD (a major new
commodification of forests and lands), which was just emerging at the
time of initial publication.
Equally important, the booklet expands to more technologies that are
being branded as “green” despite the grave dangers associated with
them, such as waste incineration, biochar, and genetically engineered
“carbon sucking” trees. We’ve also included much more information on
real solutions and positive steps communities can we can take to stop
the climate crisis.
The booklet includes contributions from ETC Group, the Indigenous
Environmental Network, Movement Generation, the Global Alliance for
Incinerator Alternatives, and International Rivers as well as art and
photography from across the movement for climate justice.
