ABSTRACT
The author discusses the controversy behind European Union Emissions Trading Scheme as a European climate policy to address climate change and reduce emissions of industrial greenhouse gas. He says that the carbon price that the scheme sets is too low to incentivize a switch from coal to low- or zero-emission alternatives. He also emphasizes that as an intertemporal trading scheme, prices of carbon should reflect expectations of future allowance scarcities in times of non-binding caps.
