Cap and Trade

Multimedia
  1. -Editorial: Cap and Trade Is a Distraction, Not a Solution (StoryofStuff.org)
      "The Story of Cap & Trade is a fast-paced, fact-filled look at the leading climate solution being discussed at Copenhagen and on Capitol Hill. Host Annie Leonard introduces the energy traders and Wall Street financiers at the heart of this scheme and reveals the 'devils in the details' in current cap and trade proposals: free permits to big polluters, fake offsets and distraction from whats really required to tackle the climate crisis." 07-10

Papers
  1. -Editorial: Cap and Trade Is Dead (Time.com)
      "The headline has been written countless times, but this time it is true: carbon cap-and-trade of any sort will not come out of this Congress—and perhaps it never will. Instead of comprehensive economy-wide carbon cap that Senator John Kerry had urged—and that the House had already passed a year ago—or even the compromise utility-only cap bill that had been suggested as an alternative, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced today that he would move forward next week on a bill that only deals with the BP oil spill and a few other low-profile energy policies." 07-10

  2. Offsets for Biochar (Nature.com)
      "While charcoal for agricultural use is now selling for about US$500 per tonne, that same tonne of charcoal, at current prices, is worth only about US$50 if sold for offsetting emissions. Even if the price of carbon offsets rose to US$100 per tonne of CO2, that tonne of biochar would still be worth only US$350 in offsets, says Fournier. In fact, he says, the economics of biochar will be determined by a combination of its value as a soil additive, as a carbon offset measure and as an energy source." 05-09

  3. World Bank Carbon Finance (WorldBank.org)
      "The World Bank manages over two billion dollars to purchase credits of greenhouse gas emission reductions from projects that are expected to be registered for the purposes of the Kyoto Protocol's Article 12 (Clean Development Mechanism) or Article 6 (Joint Implementation)." 06-09
