China to announce national cap-and-trade system!

Cheshire Cat Photo, LLC Logo

If the words “cap-and-trade system” are NEW to you, they deal with carbon emissions. The fact that China plans to announce plans for a national cap-and-trade system means that they are a lot smarter about climate change than many people in the USA. 😉 According to

U.S. administration officials say China will announce plans Friday to launch a national system to limit greenhouse gases and force industries to purchase pollution credits.

The officials say Beijing plans to put the system known as cap-and-trade into place in 2017 as part of measures aimed to address climate change in cooperation with the U.S. and others.

A statement that will be released after the summit meeting between President Barack Obama and his Chinese counterpart will “…flesh out how their two countries plan to achieve targets for cutting emissions set at a bilateral summit in Beijing last year.” Hopefully, the announcement will spur a broader agreement on  climate change in December.

So… if you think that scientific data on climate change is something that you can ARGUE about, wake up or get out of the way.
