The results of the first full-scale emissions trading schemes are in, and their achievements have been modest. The author retraces the steps that have made carbon emissions trading the default climate policy mitigation response in Australia and internationally. Kuch examines environmental regulation and climate change at a critical time in thinking about pollution control, arguing that emissions trading schemes will not be sufficient to 'civilize markets' and prevent dangerous climate change.
