Thanks for your hard work! Your proposal provided an interesting way to achieve compliance with the objective of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change . However, reviewers found the proposal hard to understand, especially the specifics of the contraction and convergence process.

From the author's point of view, a curse with C&C has been that perceptions of it veer between it being: - [1] 'too fair' versus 'not fair enough' [2] [simplistic] 'too simple' versus 'too complicated' [3] a 'communist-plot' versus a 'capitalist' plot. . . . the list goes on. If you or the reviewers show a little more of why the make the comment above, it would be possible to answer it. The comment as it stands conveys nothing about that so its as good as impossible to answer. C&C is primarily a proposal for a 'negotiating-mechanism' to help UNFCCC-negotiators 'quantify' the time dependent schedule we are all now on for achieving UNFCCC-compliance.
