The CO2 trading – flawy but necessary

The EU Emission Trading Scheme (ETS) has many flaws, but the arguments against it have at least as many.
The ETS allows a large scale trading of greenhouse gas emissions – and this trade is how the EU chose to meet the Kyoto Agreement.

Jesper Rolin Sørensen investigated the ETS scheme as part of his Bachelor’s project at the Danish School of Media and Journalism, June 2009.

His project is about CO2 quotas and the trade between companies. This highly debated topic is usually portrayed from a very negative perspective. The background for the CO2 quotas is quite complicated. Jesper Rolin wanted to assist readers and raise the level of the knowledge. Furthermore, Denmark is hosting the upcoming UN Climate Summit, where leaders from all over the world are going to meet, to try and find a successor to the Kyoto Protocol.
