China launches carbon emissions trading system
 
17:06
China's economic planner, the National Development and Reform Commission, recently launched a carbon emissions trading system. Under this mechanism, companies can trade carbon emission permits like they are commodities, in the hope that it will reduce carbon emissions. Under the Paris Agreement, China has promised to cut carbon emissions by 60 to 65 percent per unit of GDP by 2030, compared with 2005 levels. In the meantime, it would boost its use of non-fossil fuels, making them account for 20 percent of China's energy consumption. While other countries' carbon markets struggled, can China's system buck the trend? Wu Changhua, China/Asia Director, Office of Jeremy Rifkin, and former Greater China Director of the Climate Group; Michael K. Dorsey, co-founder and vice president of Strategy-US Climate Plan; and Isabel Hilton, CEO and Editor of chinadialogue.net, share their views.

What is Carbon Emissions Trading?
 
01:43
You want to dive deep into the world of finance and management? Visit us: http://www.frankfurt-school.de/en/home/programmes.html?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=ACQUISITION Burning fossil fuels like coal, oil or natural gas moves cars, produces electricity or heat. Unfortunately, it also generates carbon dioxide emissions, and drives climate change. The European Union has decided to strongly reduce emissions. Obviously this should be done at the lowest costs to the firms and the people. That is where the Emissions Trading comes into play: The European Union fixes a carbon emissions target, then divides it into allowances, that each allow to emit one ton of CO2. These are now distributed to the firms. Now, for every ton of emissions, the firm needs to turn in one allowance. If it needs more or less, it can buy or sell them. So there will be a market for allowances. A firm will now think twice before it emits carbon dioxide: - If it is cheaper to avoid a ton of emissions and sell an allowance then the firm will do that. - But also: The firm may choose to emit more and just buy an allowance if that increases profit. Therefore, the firms will end up in a situation where they all face the same costs if they would want to avoid an additional ton of CO2. That means: The cheap abatement options are used – and at the same time no firm is forced to use particularly expensive ways to reduce emissions as it can always buy allowances. In other words: the economy has reached the emissions target in the cheapest way.
The European Union Emissions Trading System

With the U.S. backing away from a cap-and-trade system, the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) stands as a solitary, iconic, and often-criticized outpost for market-based approaches for limiting green house gas emissions. A. Denny Ellerman evaluates the performance and prospects of the EU ETS and consider whether it, and the global trading vision embodied in the Kyoto Protocol, is at a dead end or, despite all the difficulties, is still the way to an effective global climate policy.

About this Event 22 Jun 2009 http://www.iiea.com/ Carbon Prices, Consumer Costs, and Efficiency Solutions Climate Action in the US and Ideas for the EU About the speech: Richard Cowart will outline how foundation policies for clean energy, and especially energy efficiency, are necessary for successful reductions in ghgs. He will draw on his extensive experience advising the ten states of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) and the US Congress on the design of cap-and-trade systems, and draw lessons for the EU. In particular he will argue that a cap and invest strategy is the best approach to carbon revenues, especially if carbon revenues are recycled directly into programmatic energy efficiency measures. About the speaker: Richard Cowart is the Director of European Programs for the Regulatory Assistance Project. RAP has worked in more than 40 US states and has trained government officials in 16 other nations. Prior to joining RAP Mr. Cowart served for 13 years as Commissioner and Chair of the Vermont Public Service Board, and for five years as an Assistant Professor of Planning and Environmental Law at the University of California, Berkeley.

In the U.S., there are already two large carbon markets in play—one in California, and one in the Northeast. There will likely be an expansion of U.S. carbon markets in the coming years as the Clean Power Plan is implemented. Internationally, the European Union has the world’s largest carbon market, and the United Nations has outlined rules and guidelines for carbon trading. Agriculture has the capacity to sequester—or emit—large amounts of carbon, and will therefore be greatly impacted by cap-and-trade and carbon markets. On this webinar we will hear from two experts: Renata Brillinger, the Executive Director of the California Climate and Agriculture Network, and Ben Lilliston, Vice President of Programs at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. Renata will share lessons learned from the current California cap-and-trade program and principles to improve the effectiveness and equity of carbon markets as they relate to agriculture.

California: the First Carbon Cap and Trade System in the U.S
 
01:20
California: the first Carbon Cap and Trade System in the U.S The failure by the congress to pass cap- and-trade legislation in 2010 was disappointing. But if environmentalists look west from Washington — about 2,728 miles west — they'll see reason for hope. At the end of 2012, California, the Golden State known for its forefront environmental policy, has launched a carbon cap-and-trade system, the first in the nation. In Carbon Cap and Trade system, the government set a statewide level on emission, called the "cap." The cap is distributed as permits to firms, some for free, and others through auction. The firm can then trade by buying and selling permits at market price, allowing flexibilities. Firms either choose to operate more efficiently and adopt cleaner technology to emit less carbon dioxide, or they have to buy permits. California established a declining limit on the state's total greenhouse-gas emissions. In its first auction for carbon permits in November, California Air Resources Board has fully sold out the available permits for 2013 at price just above the regulated price floor of $10 per ton of carbon.. For some, the low market price seem less exciting as it means low cost to pay for emitting carbon dioxide. However, others view it as a realistic start, indication that the cap is at a realistic level that is not too difficult to meet.

Subscribe to France 24 now: http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN Last year the world spewed out 32 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide emissions Now imagine if this pollution had a price. Enter the idea of carbon trading, a concept created by American economists. It’s known as cap and trade. If a company emits less than its limit, it can sell its permits to other companies: that’s the trade. Over time, the total number of permits is reduced…. and in theory it becomes more expensive to pollute. In 2005 the European Union introduced the world’s first carbon trading scheme with mixed results. Partly because there were too many permits given out... and the value of each one dropped … making it very cheap to pollute. Worldwide there are around 30 countries and 20 cities or regions that have chosen this path. representing 8 per cent of emissions. Now China, the biggest polluter on the planet has announced plans for its own national cap and trade scheme. It will be, by far, the world’s largest.

Protesters disrupt New York City Carbon Trading Expo
 
01:32
Protesters disrupt New York City Carbon Trading Expo Action takes place as Carbon Trading legislation prepares to clear Senate committee New York City -- Protesters with Rising Tide North America's "Greenwash Guerrillas" paid a surprise Halloween visit to the Carbon Market Insights conference in New York City today. Posing as delegates, two protesters took the stage at the exclusive event and presented the 700 attendees with a "Deed to the Atmosphere," denouncing Carbon Trading as a sham approach to the fossil fuels crisis. The action was the first in the US to target the growing Carbon Trading industry. "Carbon trading puts the most crucial decisions about the future of life on this planet in the hands of fossil fuel industry," said protester Jessica Starr "the very industry that got us into this mess in the first place."  Though heavily criticized by environmental and human rights organizations world-wide, Carbon Trading is the primary mechanism for reducing greenhouse gas emissions under the Kyoto Protocol, as well as in Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and John Warner's (R-Va.) "America's Climate Security Act of 2007." The Carbon Market Insights conference brings together the leaders of the US financial, non-profit, and "eco securities" industries backing a domestic US Carbon Trading market.  Lieberman and Warner's bill, S. 2191, is expected to clear the Senate's Environment and Public Works Committee in November. If enacted, it would create a system of tradable permits in greenhouse gas emissions, which would be gifted to status quo polluters through 2036. As these permits may be bought and sold for enormous profits on the marketplace, the environmental group Friends of the Earth has stated that the "Lieberman climate bill may contain the biggest corporate giveaways in American history", valued at 1.5 trillion dollars. The European Emissions Trading System established under the Kyoto protocol has generated hundreds of billions of dollars of additional profits for the fossil fuel industry, yet most countries are failing to meet their greenhouse gas emissions reductions. "Gifting free, tradable property rights to the worst polluters does little to ensure reduction of greenhouse gas emissions," said David Lee, another of the Greenwash Guerillas "Carbon Trading and the Lieberman bill are a subsidy for big polluters disguised as a climate protection measure."  The Liebermen Bill allows the largest greenhouse gas emitters to "offset" or nullify their emissions by financing carbon reductions projects that take place in other locations, stalling implementations of technologies that will reduce greenhouse gases here. These projects, frequently initiated in developing countries, shift investment away from emission-reducing technologies domestically, and have also been criticized for not always delivering promised reductions. These projects have led to the displacement of low-carbon use communities in favor of large scale "clean development" projects including hydroelectric dams and genetically modified tree plantations. In Uganda, villagers have been arrested and even killed after being ousted from their land for tree plantations which they dared to cut down.  "Carbon offsets do little more than the selling of indulgences by Catholic churches in the 16th century," said David Lee "it's time to get serious about stopping climate change and shut these false solutions down." http://www.risingtidenorthamerica.org

Trading Pollution: How Pollution Permits Paradoxically Reduce Emissions
 
04:09
In an effort to reduce pollution, the government tried two policy prescriptions under the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. The first—command and control—mandated that each power plant lower its pollution by a determined amount. However, different firms face different cost curves and, because information is dispersed, policymakers don’t always know those costs. The second policy prescription—tradable pollution permits—empowered firms to use knowledge of their cost curves to buy or sell pollution permits as needed. Under this policy, the invisible hand of the market helped discover the lowest cost way of reducing pollution.  Microeconomics Course: http://bit.ly/20VablY Ask a question about the video: http://bit.ly/1p5hfkn Next video: http://bit.ly/1R24Bch Help us caption & translate this video! http://amara.org/v/GSnT/

Tom Goldtooth: Carbon Trading is “Fraudulent” Scheme to Privatize Air & Forests to Permit Pollution
 
10:43
https://democracynow.org - In South Dakota, the energy company TransCanada says it shut down part of its pipeline Thursday after a rupture spilled 210,000 gallons of oil in a field near Amherst. The pipeline carries a highly polluting form of oil called “diluted bitumen.” This comes amid a new report titled “Carbon Pricing: A Critical Perspective for Community Resistance,” which exposes the dangers of carbon trading, a scheme in which major companies purchase carbon credits from countries who agree to plant trees or protect existing forests. We speak with one of the report’s co-authors, Tom Goldtooth, executive director of the Indigenous Environmental Network, and Isabella Zizi from Richmond, California, home to a massive Chevron oil refinery. Chevron has said it will purchase carbon credits to offset increased pollution from a recent expansion of the Richmond refinery.

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. If youve heard about Cap & Trade, but arent sure how it works (or who benefits), this is the movie is for you.

Organized Crime in Charge of EU Carbon Trade, Europol Says
 
03:09
Report by Raymond Frenken, EUX.TV Script: First, there was ClimateGate - the scandal with hacked emails suggesting scientists have abused data for research on global warming. Now, another international climate scandal is emerging that may have an impact on the talks in Copenhagen. Europes top police body Europol, the closest thing that European Union has to the American Fbi, has exposed a massive fraud with the unions official market in carbon credits, the Emission Trading System. The fraud is costing tax payers in a handful of European countries more than five billion euro - 7 billion dollars - and raises doubts about the effectiveness of carbon trading as a measure to curb emissions. Europol director Rob Wainwright issued the following statement: These criminal activities endanger the credibility of the European Union Emission Trading System and lead to the loss of significant tax revenue for governments. Police authorities in Belgium, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom have worked together in what Europol calls a process to identify and disrupt the organised criminal structures behind these fraud schemes. Lets see if we can explain the scheme, using this graphic provided by Europol. The fraud is based on a what is tax experts and investigators call as a Carroussel fraud with missing traders. This carroussel generates money by stealing value added tax from governments. The first step of the criminals is to open a trading account with a national carbon registry, in the name of a newly registered company. From there, this company buys EU emission allowances in another country on one of the six official carbon exchanges in Europe. After that, these emission allowances are moved to another country, and subsequently sold to an unregulated broker in yet another country. This broker then charges VAT on these transactions but does not pay the collected VAT to the tax authorities. Just before the tax authorities realize that this company owes them huge amounts of VAT, basically a period of a few months, the company and its owners disappear. A new company is set up, using other front men, to repeat the carroussel. Crime rings that run such schemes can have several dozen or hundreds of companies whose real owners are difficult to trace. Basically, this type of fraud is possible because European countries continue to disagree on single market tax legislation. Carroussel fraud is a constant feature in the European cross-border market and until recently only happened with shipments of valuable goods such as iPods or flat-panel tvs, not with carbon credits. Europes tax commissioner, in an interview with EUX.TV, has estimated the damage from these carroussel frauds at more than 60 billion euro per year as Euroean finance minister continue to disagree on effective measures to fight this fraud. The Emission Trading System system was set up in 2005 as part of Europes efforts to curb emissions of greenhouse gases. That topic now is at the top of the agenda at the UN Climate summit in Copenhagen this week and next. This unprecedented and massive fraud is likely to prove a major embarrasment for EU negotiators.

Transatlantic Perspectives After Paris: Carbon Markets and the Linking of Emissions Trading Systems
 
01:18:23
The SB44 Climate Change Conference in Bonn marks the beginning of the Paris Agreement’s implementation and comes at a time in which discussions on carbon markets are gaining renewed prominence:  The Paris Agreement provides the framework for new mechanisms in its Article 6 and leaves room for interpretation in its implementation.  While facing legal challenges, Obama’s Clean Power Plan could enable US States to achieve GHG reduction targets with the support of carbon market mechanisms.  In the EU Emission Trading System, a proposal for reform towards 2030 has been tabled, after adoption of the Market Stability Reserve to balance supply and demand.  Additional states and regions (ex. China) have started carbon markets in recent years and could provide powerful partners for the linking of Emission Trading Systems. In this context, Ecologic Institute and Climate Strategies hosted a side event at the conference as part of the Emerging Leaders in Environmental and Energy Policy (ELEEP) Network' Transatlantic Energy and Climate Dialogue. During the event, guest speakers Aki Kachi (Carbon Market Watch) and Michael Mehling (MIT) discussed existing options for the development of carbon markets post-Paris and provided a perspective on what they could mean for carbon markets in the US and the EU. These experts presentations were followed by a discussion, moderated by Matthias Duwe (Ecologic Institute). To find out more about the ELEEP Network visit www.eleep.eu
