Check out this fine interactive mapping application that shows who’s getting the carbon allowances for the EU’s cap and trade program.
Unfortunately, the EU hasn’t reduced their carbon emissions much, apparently because the caps are pretty weak. This mapping application shows why that may be the case and who’s benefitting from a weak cap and trade system.
This is one of the nicer interfaces I’ve seen for this type of app: clear, easy to use, and intuitive. Bravo to the designers and engineers who created it… I may be into using much of your source code and design set in the very near future
