ABSTRACT
A reprint of the article "Obscenity of Carbon Trading," by Kevin Smith, which appeared on the BBC Science and Nature Web site is discussed. It discusses the author's views on the environmental and moral issues of carbon trading. He believes that effective action on climate change involves demanding, adopting and supporting policies that reduce emissions at source as opposed to offsetting or trading.
