Project Report:
Atmospheric Trust Campaign
Purpose
- Investigates the causes of economic imbalances.
- Explores and develops market-based solutions.

Summary

We support legal actions and public education to secure the legal right to a healthy atmosphere and stable climate system at the federal, state and global domestic levels. See supplemental section for a description of specific actions.

Purpose

We are investigating and addressing a major cause of economic imbalance: the climate.


Presently, society does not accurately price the damages that stem from climate destabilizing activities and products. Present and future harms that come from such activities and products are not factored into their pricing, resulting in major economic imbalances today and in the future.


Additionally, we are exploring and advocating for market approaches that will promote a sustainable economy and economic balance relating to ecosystem services, climate change, energy security, food production and other environmental issues.


Economic imbalances that favor carbon intensive goods and services and perpetuate environmental degradation continue to dominate our economy. Our work will lead to court orders that require governments to realign those imbalances toward a sustainable economy, in accordance with scientific prescriptions to stabilize our climate system and de-acidify our oceans.

Scope

The scope of our project is global.
