Carbon Management | Year: 2014

This article considers why price-based frameworks may be inherently unsuitable for delivering unprecedented global emissions reductions while retaining the necessary public and political support, and argues that it is time to instead draw on quantity-based mechanisms such as TEQs (tradable energy quotas). TEQs is a climate policy framework combining a hard cap on emissions with the use of market mechanisms to distribute quotas beneath that cap. The significant international research into TEQs is summarized, including a 2008 UK government feasibility study, which concluded that the scheme was "ahead of its time." TEQs would cover all sectors within a national economy, including households, and fndings suggest it could act as a catalyst for the socio-technical transitions required to maximize wellbeing under a tightening cap, while generating national common purpose toward innovative energy demand reductions. Finally, there are refections on the role that the carbon management community can play in further developing TEQs and reducing the rift between what climate science calls for and what politics is delivering. © 2015 Taylor & Francis.

This paper uses discourse analysis to explore individuals' use of two discourses in Scottish rural health community participation. It explores interview texts from a community participation project to design new services. Findings show that some community members employ discourses of rural localness and tradition to augment their credibility and gain influence. In particular, community members employ discourses that prioritise the voices of those perceived as local, and when discussing doctors and nurses, prioritise those who display idealised characteristics associated with local traditional provision. In examining these prominent discourses, the paper suggests that community participation involves more complex power-plays than simply those between health service managers and the public, that tend to be portrayed in health policy. Power-play between community members could affect processes and outcomes of community participation. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.
