From the Editor
After the Contributions of Working Groups I and II to the 5th Assessment Report of the IPCC, Re3 dedicates its editor's choice to the presentation of the Contribution of Working Group III focussing on mitigation. This huge report is again introduced by interviews to key experts clarifying with simple words the main issues at stake. It emerges that decarbonization implies a huge change in our current technologies, but also that alternatives are accessible at a reasonable cost. Therefore, all ultimately rests on our willingness to follow a different and sustainable development path.

"Greening Economics: It is Time" by Carlo Carraro, Marianne Fay and Marzio Galeotti
Environment - Articles
The concept of environmental capital is thoroughly entrenched in policy discussions but largely missing from mainstream economic curriculums.
