Jun 16, 2014 Marketplace Datebook for the week of June 16, 2014
Jun 18, 2013 China launches a new pilot carbon market in the southern city of Shenzhen. Carbon cap and trade schemes have had a hard time getting off the ground in other countries. Can China make it succeed?
Jun 6, 2013 The Monterrey Bay Aquarium just released a new report on all the sea junk they've discovered over the past 22 years of underwater surveys.
Feb 18, 2013 The European parliament is voting to halt new carbon permits in an effort to drive up the price of emissions, but will the tinkering hurt the credibility of the carbon trading system?
Feb 6, 2013 One reason the board game piece may have been canned is new products like wrinkle-free fabrics have made ironing a thing of the past. Once a staple in every home, many people no longer even own an iron.
Jan 25, 2013 Europe has the largest market for carbon permits in the world. The idea is, the more a company has to pay for permits to pollute, the greater incentive it has to reduce pollution. But the economic slowdown has greatly reduced the cost of permits.

Jul 11, 2012 North Carolina's legislature put aside the latest predictions of rising sea levels, for coastal planning purposes, in favor of more study. Long-term predictions of a three-foot rise by 2010 could needlessly hurt development, critics said.
