Quebec-California Carbon Trading Partnership Officially Kicks Off

(Globe and Mail)

Quebec and California are the only members moving forward with cap-and-trade programs in what was once a promising alliance of 11 states and provinces comprising the Western Climate Initiative that envisaged a North American market for carbon trading.
