Isn't the trading of Carbon credits just defeats the Greenpeace efforts. Trading of carbon credits is almost like shifting of the pollution from one place to another - if I am not wrong.

Really?

What list is that. Or better yet, what country/region is that list tracking?

The problem is how the greenpeace impacts on finance. What financial implications on their investments?  Most investors arent interested in what would not bring quick returns.

@ Ashish

There is no guarantee. But in a system where corporations are ready to pay bribe to government to escape from the cost of implementing environment protection measures, you cant expect the market forces to play their part effectively. A government regulation does make a difference; if 70% break the law, 30% will implement it.

"what is the guarantee that they will be enforced fairly and not be sold out to the Highest bidder???"

Good point. But we can't generalize that to every country. Laws and regulations are much more enforced in most western or developed countries.

Waqas,

I could very easily bring about the Reverse Argument also-Just because you have Government Rules and Regulations ;what is the guarantee that they will be enforced fairly and not be sold out to the Highest bidder???

@ tech4people

Relying on central government alone is not a good idea but to me relying on market forces alone is not safe either. If you think from a global perspective and not just the US, there are many countries where if the government lets the market forces implement the environment protection measures, that will not happen no matter what. It is about the precedence. If that says that money making is important, then every company in that country is Apple.

@Adeniji Kayode: 

You are spot on. In the developing world automobiles do not make it to the top of the list. The power generation and the industries put little emphasis on being envoirnmentally friendly. Even if you consider automobiles to be an important contributor I think that it would be the heavy vehicles and the auto-rickshaws (3 wheelers that usually run on 2-stroke engines).

@Prabhakar,

Youare right on that but in the developing countries, that may not be the case.

They still depend on generators for power so much that automobile don,t really make the top of the list.

@Bolaji, I agree with you on that, I really believe emission-causing industries moving to a non- residencial area(s) will not solve the issue of the enviromental pollution at all, but to embrace the Greenpeace.
