Here's a comment I just posted on Care2 in response to an article about the Trans-Pacific Partnership:

The Trans-Pacific Partnership appears to be another example of globalization being done for the benefit of the 1% and only incidentally for the rest of us. We - meaning the people of the world - need to get more control over our international institutions. That means more democracy - direct democracy on an international scale.

Climate scientist James Hansen has proposed a global carbon tax with the proceeds to be distributed to everybody (he calls it fee-and-dividend). I have posted a petition on Care2 that calls for a worldwide referendum on a global carbon tax based on Hansen's proposal.

You can view the petition (and hopefully put your name on it) at www.thepetitionsite.com/286/384/042/petition-for-a-referendum-on-a-global-carbon-tax/www.thepetitionsite.com/286/384/042/petition-for-a-referendum-on-a-global-carbon-tax/
