ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), a voluntary market designed to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions in the United States. A booming global market is emerging for anyone who can take carbon out of the atmosphere, whether through innovative technologies or greater energy efficiency. CCX members agree to reduce their greenhouse-gas emissions by a certain percentage each year. If they beat the target, they can sell their credits to other members, and get paid for not polluting.
