The article focuses on carbon offset credits and carbon dioxide (CO2) allowances in October 2012. It states that the European Union (EU) CO2 allowances held within September's range, while the United Nation's carbon offset credits dropped to a new low due to significant oversupply and hints of a possible ban on some credits in the EU system. It comments on a leaked report from the European Commission to the Parliament and Council concerning proposed intervention by regulators.
