ABSTRACT
The article looks at the uncovered evidence of serious flaws in the multi-billion dollar global market for carbon credits. BBC World Service investigation found examples of projects that have been paid through carbon credits. It notes that the credits are generated by a United Nations-run scheme called the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), which gives firms in developing countries financial incentives to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
