Carbon trading

If carbon trading were done properly, it would be an acceptable, market-driven solution to the problem of carbon emission (if we accept that humanity is a significant cause of climate change).

That the European Commission is proposing carbon trading be extended to aviation is something that I can accept to some extent.

But doesn't it say all you need to know that the environMENTALISTS are opposed to it? This solution, one must assume, is not sufficiently left-wing and regressive enough for them. If they have caveats such as the vapur trails and other-gas emmissions, fine, but they must at least welcome half-steps in the 'right' direction?

Politicians evangelise environmentalism as a religion. Fortunately the solutions do not have to be of the type politicians on the left (Cameron, Campbell etc.) would like.
