“This is a great book. It is packed not with cockeyed optimism, but with reasoned hope and proposals for action [...] At its core is the belief that citizens must and can protect the commons, those gifts of nature and society that belong to all of us.”
– Peter Barnes, author of Capitalism 3.0: A Guide to Reclaiming the Commons
"An interesting book with some really good material [...] It contains a wealth of useful information and ideas. A key emphasis is on ‘commons approaches’ that recognise that the environment and its resources belong to all of us and should be managed collectively and not via the money system nor by top-down direction."
- Mark Burton in the Manchester Climate Monthly.
"This book is a very welcome and understandable response to the dwindling momentum of attempts to deal with climate change at the global level...[it] recognises that climate policy in general, and cap and share in particular, must be developed against the widespread inertia now existing."
- James Robertson, independent political thinker and activist with a focus on global monetary reform
“This book analyses climate policy uniquely taking into account social justice and equity [...] essential reading for all interested in effective action against climate change.”
– Frank Barnaby, former director of the Stockholm Institute for Peace Research and professor of Peace Studies at the University of Delft
“This book recognises that action on climate change cannot come from governments unless it is first driven by the people. This requires wide-ranging social transformation, and its calls for land reform as one driver for such community empowerment are especially refreshing.”
- Alastair McIntosh, author of Hell and High Water: Climate Change, Hope and the Human Condition.
"This book develops the idea of "cap and share" in which a limited number of permits to use fossil fuels are sold and the revenue shared among the population, either of one country, or the whole world. A key piece in the jigsaw is already in place -- we already know how to distribute such funds [...] nothing new need be invented. "
- Joseph Hanlon, co-author of Just Give Money to the Poor: the Development Revolution from the Global South
