Emissions Trading / Carbon Market News (11/11/2019)

Dear Sir or Madam,

the media hype around Greta Thunberg and the movement “Fridays for Future” seems to be coming to an end and climate protection is just one of many topics. So it is fitting that the warning of 11,000 scientists from 184 countries is not to be found on the front pages of the newspapers on which the climate protection movement had recently found a place.

The joint declaration of the scientists, of which 900 are from Germany, warns of a global climate emergency. At the same time, the scientists have come to the conclusion that the objectives of the Paris Agreement on climate change are not enough to reduce global warming. And here too, only 28 EU states and 7 other countries are on the right track.

At the same time, the scientists warned that there would be untold human suffering insofar as human behaviour on greenhouse gas emissions would not fundamentally change. To achieve this, they are calling for, among other things, the switch to renewable energies, a sustainable change in the world economy, the containment of world population growth and the reduction of animal products.

It is to be hoped that this urgent warning will be a topic at the upcoming World Climate Change Conference in Madrid next month.

Prices for one ton of CO2 emissions have become slightly cheaper in the EU next week. During this trading week, 11,066,500 EUAs will be offered for auction on the Leipzig EEX on four days, which is 5.6 million fewer shares than in the previous week.
