Justin Dargin – Emissions trading platforms – Cap-and-trade

Nearly every carbon emissions trading platform can be classified into one of three overarching categories—whether CaT, carbon taxation or a hybrid scheme. While the mechanics differ for each program, the fundamental praxis is that all carbon schemes seek the commoditization of carbon. The easiest and least complicated model, based on administrative ease and operability, is the CaT system, which is also known as allowance or permit trading.

A CaT system, which is essentially an administrative approach to mitigating carbon emissions by providing economic incentives for achieving quantifiable reductions in the emissions of pollution, places limits (caps) on a specified number of emissions sources. Generally, a governmental body sets a limit or a “cap” that declines over time, and then allocates a sufficient number of permits to equal the cap. Each permit or allowance equals one metric ton of carbon dioxide equivalent

(tCo2e). Even though emissions from all entities covered by the cap may not exceed the maximum allowable volume in the aggregate, individually they may reduce its carbon emissions (theoretically) by the most cost efficient method.

To avoid paying the carbon price, carbon-intensive industries attempt to either become more efficient, invest in renewable energy technology, or transition to less carbon-intensive fuels, etc.Carbon emissions restrictions may apply to a specific emission point, a particular company, or they may form a comprehensive, equal reduction for all emitters. The central GHG regulatory body should be authorized to lower the GHG ceiling over time, to reduce total national emissions.

A CaT system allows participants to determine the most cost-effective approach to decreasing emissions, or in its absence, to purchase permits from emitters who successfully reduced their emissions. Proponents stress the market-friendly structure that allows environmental goals to be

met in the most cost-efficient manner. In theory, it allows those who can reduce emissions at the lowest cost to do so, thereby reducing pollution at the lowest cost to society.

CaT systems have been vulnerable to criticism over the years. Some skeptics allege that it allows individual emitters to avoid responsibility. Others allege that it would unleash economic havoc upon the country that establishes it. Each criticism assumes that a CaT framework would pass additional costs to consumers and increase prices of manufactured products. This logic holds that an economy will begin a tailspin when consumers reduce spending and companies move to a less restrictive jurisdiction.14 In spite of the criticism, CaT is not only the least criticized of all schemes; it is viewed as the most effective process and one that makes environmental goals compatible with a market approach.

Justin Bieber March 2013: Pop star keeps low profile in black hoodie and leather pants while leaving Mint Leaf restaurant

“Beauty and a Beat” crooner Justin Bieber was photographed arriving at Indian restaurant Mint Leaf in Haymarket on Sunday (March 3, 2013). The “Boyfriend” singer showed up at the famous Indian eatery to enjoy a night off his “Believe” world tour following his gig in Nottingham 24 hours earlier. Justin Bieber seemed to try to keep a low profile as he was dressed in leather-look trousers and a black hoodie. The teen idol accessorized his ensemble with a backwards baseball cap and completed his appearance with an eye-catching pair of red trainers. This is the second time Justin Bieber has returned to the West End restaurant in a week. Only two days ago, the five-foot-seven star dined at the same eaterie before making his way to the Cirque Du Soir nightclub, where his 19th birthday plans didn’t quite go to plan. Justin Bieber invited 20 friends to join him at the nightclub in the capital including his rumoured girlfriend Ella-Paige Roberts Clarke, 17, and his best friend Jaden Smith, 14. However, the bash had to be cut short after Ella-Paige and Jaden were turned away for being underage. The birthday of Selena Gomez’s ex-boyfriend was further ruined as he discovered his friend Lil Twist was pulled over by police for making an unsafe lane change in his Fisker Karma.

| Justin Smith | Divisional Playoff vs Packers 2013 I ᴴᴰ 1080p |

Smith is expected to return to the field for Saturday night’s NFC divisional playoff game against Green Bay (12-5) at Candlestick Park, and, oh, how his teammates will welcome back “The Cowboy” as they try to chase down Aaron Rodgers and Co. Smith, the soft-spoken emotional leader of defensive coordinator Vic Fangio’s unit, missed the final two regular-season games with a partially torn left triceps muscle. His arm is now covered in a protective brace for practice, and everybody involved expects him to be ready to play for the NFC West champions (11-4-1). Coach Jim Harbaugh put it this way Wednesday: “God willing and the creek don’t rise, he will play.” Having the extra week of rest was a huge help for Smith’s health. San Francisco secured the NFC’s No. 2 seed with a win against Arizona and when Minnesota beat Green Bay in Week 17. It is the versatile Smith who makes this defense go – with his stingy pass-rushing and run-stopping. Sure, there’s Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman, Aldon Smith. And a talented, playmaking secondary. Smith is a smash-mouth footballer to the core. The definition of the blue-collar player Harbaugh so loves. Smith chips his teeth about once a season thanks to a refusal to wear a mouth guard because it restricts his breathing. “Justin, his presence just back on the practice field, I can tell you this, that there’s a character of our team that’s enhanced, is driven by Justin,” Harbaugh said earlier in the week. “And that’s the way I think of it
