The Class

There is a direct relation between global average temperatures and the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Addressing the impacts of climate change therefore requires decreasing the amount of emissions released into the atmosphere, otherwise known as climate mitigation. This classroom will focus on the role of carbon markets – through which carbon emissions are generated and traded among polluters – as a climate mitigation tool.
