E.u. Decides: We're Not Polluting Enough

Recommended Posts

First they decide solar energy is good, but only if its expensive German made solar energy, so thanks to the EU, we will now have to spend 50% more on panels, should we want to 'go green'

Now, theyve found out we're not polluting enough for the state to get fat on our carbon burning activities...


Slack demand for electricity because of the recession and an abundance of permits helped push the price of emitting a ton of carbon below €5 ($6.60) earlier this year, from nearly €30 in 2008.

On Tuesday, the price dropped to €2.55 before recovering partially to €3.20.

Without some intervention to reduce supply, "the ETS will almost certainly collapse," said Kash Burchett, a London-based analyst at consulting company IHS Energy.

Ahh, intervention...Cough up proles. Carbons may be too expensive and put you in fuel poverty, but we still need our cut - more importantly, too few carbons to tax has meant Uncle Herman has to put his new learjet on hold.

Isnt this the great thing about the marketization of green economics? Whenever the 'market' doesnt do what they want it to do, they rig it some more!
