ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), a carbon market which compensates ranchers for managing lands in ways that sequester carbon to offset greenhouse gas emissions, and discusses its impact on ranchers in Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico. The mechanisms for buying and selling carbon offsets are explained. The challenges associated with including ranchers in carbon markets are identified.
