Professor Andrew Oswald is calling for the introduction of "Global Warming Bonds".
He suggests that governments should issue “Global Warming Bonds”, to compensate individuals, companies and countries who cut fossil fuel emissions. The idea is that the bonds would start to pay out around the year 2045 and would be paid for by our grandchildren through taxation.
