The article examines the emergence of the inventive concept of Canada to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the carbon trading systems. The concept will address greenhouse gases as tradable articles of commerce, granting large polluters to purchase and trade pollution credits in order to conform to emission reduction targets. The suggested Canadian scheme will be presented in 2008 to concur with the first phase of the Kyoto conformity. The author stressed that the proposed carbon trading system may not be perfect but the best probability for success in curbing greenhouse gas emissions.
