These six steps would enable us to switch to clean energy and save the rainforests, using tried and tested technologies and policies.
Who has the power to make it happen? The world’s parliaments. Some have already shown what can be done: by guaranteeing a good price for clean energy fed into their national grids, some parliaments have already made their countries world leaders in wind (Denmark), photovoltaic energy (Germany) and solar thermal power (Spain). Costa Rica has halted deforestation with a "payment for ecosystem services" law. But we need to move faster, spreading good ideas from country to country. The e-Parliament is linking legislators and citizens together world-wide to help solve the climate problem.
