  1. Why is this an while male club.
    No seller in Africa, guess Nigeria and other could give you some very good deals.
    Yes Zimbabwe would undercut them. Venezuela could get some much needed cash.

    You obviously need to get rid of the white male club who oversee the trading and global warming would not be an problem anymore as carbon credits bought is higher than the emissions.

  2. Selling emissions is selling credits. China has been dumping illegal CFCs into the air and is moving fantastic amounts of coal around every day. Seems like their credit might be a bit sketchy.

    It also seems a given that, even for the legal stuff, like carbon, and even if they don’t find some reason to postpone or cancel their involvement, they will severely under-buy.

    Heck, I have no doubt there are frequent posters in this forum that would maintain China should be selling credits, not buying them.
