Pollution for Sale: Emissions Trading and Joint Implementation

Front Cover
Steve Sorrell, Jim Skea
E. Elgar, Jan 1, 1999 - Nature - 390 pages
'The strength of Sorrell and Skea's analysis comes from the wide selection of topics covered by the papers, all adding valuable - often forgotten - experience. . . . I believe this book to be an excellent addition to the library of anyone who is involved in climate change. It raises awareness of previous experience, both successes and failures, particularly from within Europe, from which lessons should be drawn.' - Christiaan Vrolijk, International Affairs 'Pollution for Sale is a useful reference book for those with an interest in climate change and acidification issues and the potential contribution of economic instruments to effective environmental policy making. Each chapter is accessible to the non-specialist and there is enough academic rigour and further references to keep the specialists satisfied. Pollution for Sale deserves to sell well and widely to academics, students, environmental consultants and policymakers.' - Rosalind Bark, Journal of Energy Literature Emissions trading has become a central feature of global efforts to control climate change. Its inclusion in the Kyoto Protocol to the Framework Convention on Climate Change represents a victory for advocates of market-based instruments and builds upon twenty years of experience with trading schemes in the United States. However, the concept is controversial and attempts to introduce similar trading schemes in Europe have met with mixed results.
