[Homework]2011-05-29&06-04 “总量管制和交易”的故事 (1/3)

I am so glad that the world is finally getting together to stop the climate change. When I first heard that the leaders were meeting to talk about solutions, I breathe the huge sigh of relieve, didn't you? Then I said ,wait a minate! what exactly are they planning to do about this problem? So I looked into it, and I'll get to tell you not all the solutions they are working on are what I consulations. In fact, the leading solution known as carbon trade are emissions trading is actually a huge problem.
Now I know this is the last thing you want to hear, but the future of our planet is at stake. We got to take the time to understand what's going on here. Ok, meet the guys that the heart of so called solution, they include the guys from Anron who designs the energy trading and Wall Street financiers like Goldman Sachs who gives a subprime Morgage Crisis. Their job is to develop brand new markets, they stake the claims and then when everyone and their grandmother once in, they make up of huge immense of money as the market become a giant bubble and burst.Well, the lastest bubble just burst and now they have a new idea for a market---trading carbon pollution.
They are about to develop a three-trillion-dollar bubble, but when this one burst, It won't just take down our stoke poforlias, it could take down everything. so ,how does carbon trade work? Well, pretty much all serious scientist agree that we need to reduce the amount of carbon atomsphere to 350 ppm if we want to avoid climate disaster. In the US, that mean to reduce our emissions by 80%, maybe even more, by 2050. 80%? but the problem is most of our globle economy runs on burning fossil fuel which will release carbon. The factories make our stuff, the ships and trucks that carried around the world, and cars and billions of plants, just about everything.
So how are we going to reduce carbon in 80% and not go back to live in like little house on the poory. Well, these carbon trade guys are saying that a new carbon stock market is the best way to get it down. The first step beginning governments around the world to agree on gearly liven on carbon emission, that is the cap. I think that part is great. so, how do they want to ensure the carbon emission state under the cap.Well, government will distribute a certain amount of permits to pollute. Every year there will be fewer and fewer permits as we thought the capter are go. Innovate of campanies will get on board, billion cleaner alternatives are getting more efficient. As permits gets scarcer, they would also become valuable. So, naturally companies whoever extranal want sell them to companies who need them. That is what the trade comes in.
The logic is that as long as we stay  under the cap. It does matter who pollute in the elements. We meet the climate deadline avoiding catastrophy and oh,yeah, these guys take the fee as the broker this mozat-trillion dollar carbon raket---I mean market.
Save the planet,get rich ,what's not too late. Some of my friend were really care about our futures about carbon trade. A lot enviromental group said we expected too. Their notes is not perfect solution and won't loved the idea of turning up our planet's future on these guys. But they think it is important first step, and it's better than nothing. I'm not so sure, and I'm not the only one.
