  1. More partners for cap and trade is nice, but at the end of the day, knowing that the smelter down the street is buying forest land in a rain forest halfway around the world does nothing to actually address the issues that are being caused in my community. Hopefully, CARB doesn’t just use the potential partnerships as a way to provide polluters a way to be compliant without actually making improvements.
