Kate Evans (aka Cartoon Kate) has released a new cartoon on carbon trading.

The Carbon Supermarket — Your Future for Sale?, is available for free download.

For the less visually-inclined, Carbon Trade Watch‘s Kevin Smith has a posted a stirring indictment of carbon trading’s failures on the China Dialogue site.

He says: “Carbon trading isn’t working, and doesn’t show any signs of improving either. The biggest experiment in carbon trading so far, the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme, has been a spectacular failure, which has not made significant emissions reductions, has absorbed enormous amounts of political will and attention and has acted as a huge subsidy for some of the biggest polluters in Europe, with a handful of energy companies making billions of Euros in profit without having to reduce their emissions.”
