This article focuses on pollution trading, one of the many schemes under discussion to stop or limit climate changes. It was developed in the U.S. in the 1980s and 1990s to make reducing emissions cheaper and more palatable for heavy polluters. A comparison with other approaches, including the Kyoto Protocol and the European Union's Emissions Trading Scheme, is presented.
