Emissions Trading / Carbon Market News (2017-12-18)

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Sometimes it´s paradoxical, which small matter themes come up to the daily news reports and which themes become ignored. The US weather authority NOAA showed in their 2017 report, that the current arctic warming is without example in the past 1,500 years. The warming of the arctic has the double speed than the rest of our planet, what was not the case since 2,000 years. The average surface temperature in 2017 was the second warmest since the year 1900. Finally, it leads to the fact, that the arctic ice becomes thinner and the thicker ice is comprising only 21% of the ice cover compared to45% in 1985.

The legendary Club of Rome confirmed also in his 2017 report with the title “Come on!”, that the human hunger for commodities and energy will lead to a collapse of the systems, if we don’t act now.

In the past week, the quotes of European carbon emission allowances became a little under pressure, what brought them below the level of seven Euros on the last two days of the week. But the final quotation last Friday showed much more relaxed at 7.18 Euro and confirmed the seven Euro support level on weekly basis.
