China carbon market to fight climate change 24.5.2015 Asian Age: International
At first, the numbers and company names flashing on a big board in Beijing’s financial district suggest a booming market. A closer look indicates otherwise: The scrolling list rotates the same dozen or so trades, all from last year. The lights from the Beijing Environment Exchange — one of seven pilot markets in China for trading carbon — raises questions for the country as it prepares for next year’s roll-out of a nationwide system that could help the world’s biggest emitter of heat-trapping carbon dioxide rein in its emissions. A successful carbon offset, or “cap-and-trade,” market could play a big part in cutting China’s emissions — and help the world tackle global warming. Already launched in Europe, California and a few other spots, such carbon offset markets limit how much carbon can be emitted per year by factories and businesses. They then let those businesses that release less carbon than the cap sell to other companies permissions to emit whatever’s left. So far, the pilots have failed to make ...

Brazil's ditching of climate change targets may not signal policy shift 22.5.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest

Dilma Rousseff’s reneging on a plan to limit CO2 emissions had many fearing the worst but June’s summit with the US may simply mean a delayed announcement

First it was there. Then it was gone. The long-awaited announcement of Brazil’s new climate target came and went with a sleight of hand that caused an uproar among environmentalists this week.

But rather than signalling a shift in policy, as some had feared, the sudden appearance and disappearance of the country’s CO2 reduction goals appears to have more to do with diplomatic mistakes, realpolitik priorities and the greater importance of the US than China, the Guardian has learned.

India has asked the West to take responsibility for the damage caused by carbon emissions of the past and propose innovative financing solutions to tackle the global menace posed by climate change. “The West will have to pay for the damage they have caused to the planet. That is something the western world will have to take responsibility for because after all they have taken out all this CO2,” power minister Piyush Goyal said here. Laying out India’s plans on the road to becoming a renewable energy hub, the Union minister of state for power, coal and new and renewable energy highlighted the crucial role still to be played by coal to ensure non-stop energy supply to every citizen of India. “The focus will have to be on finding innovative ways of financing clean energy and there can be several models, which could include long-term financing or low-cost financing, if they (the West) are truly genuine in their interest to support the efforts of countries like India... India today consumes as much coal per ...
