I’m so glad that the world is finally getting together to stop climate change, when I first heard that our leaders were meeting to talk about solutions, I breathed a huge sign of relieve, didn’t you? Then I said, wait a minute, what exactly are they planning to do about this problem? So I look into it, and I’ve gotta tell you not all the solutions that they are working on what I call solutions. In fact, the leading solution known as the cap and trade or mission trading is actually a huge problem.

Well, I know this is the last thing you wanna hear, but the future of our planet is at stake, so we gotta take time to understand what’s going on here. OK, meet the guys at the heart of so-called solution, then include the guys from Eron who design energy trading and the Wall Street financier like Goldman Sachs who gave us the subprime mortgage crisis. Their job is to develop brand-new markets. They state to claim and then when everyone and their grandmothers / in, they made up with a huge amount of money as the markets become a giant bubble and burst. Well, their latest bubble just burst, and now they have a new idea for a market, trading carbon polution.

They’re about to develop a new three-trillion-dollar bubble, but when this one burst, it won’t just take down our stock pofortlios , it could take down everything. So how this cap and trade work? Well, pretty much all serious scientists agree that we need to reduce the amount of carbon in the atmosphere to 350ppm if we want to avoid climate disaster. In the US, that means reducing emissions by 80%, maybe even more by 2050. 80%? Now the problem is that most of our global economy runs on burning fossil fuels which releases carbon, the factories that make all kinds of staffs, the ships and the trucks that carry around the world, our cars and buildings and / just about everything. So how are we going to reduce carbon 80% and not go back to live in like a little house on /. Well, this cap and trade guys are saying that a new carbon stock market is the best way to get it done.

The first step beginning governments around the world to agree on a yearly living on the carbon emissions, that is the cap. I think that part is great. So how do they wanna ensure that the carbon emissions’ state is under the cap? Well, governments will distribute a certain amount of permits to pollute, every year there will be fewer and fewer permits as we follow the cap to our goal. Inevented companies will get on board, building clean alternatives and getting more efficient. As permits get scare soon, they will also become more valuable, so naturally companies who have / want to sell them to companies who need them, that’s when the trading comes in.

The logic is that as long as we stay under the cap, it doesn’t matter who polutes it and who / it, we meet the climate deadline, avoiding catastrophy and oh, yeah, these guys take the fears they broker this multi-trillion carbon market, / market.

Save the planet, get rich, well, it’s too late. Some of my friends are really care about our futures for cap and trade. A lot of environmental groups that are speculating too, they know it’s not the perfect solution, and they don’t love the idea of turning our planet future over these guys, but they think that it’s an important first step and that it’s better than nothing. I am not so sure, and I am not the only one.

碳交易基本原理是,合同的一方通过支付另一方获得温室气体减排额,买方可以将购得的减排额用于减缓温室效应从而实现其减排的目标。在6种被要求排减的温室气体中,二氧化碳(CO2)为最大宗,所以这种交易以每吨二氧化碳当量(tCO2e)为计算单位,所以通称为“碳交易”。其交易市场称为碳市场(Carbon Market)。
