We welcome new soil trading systems

Biodiversity makes for resilience and choice makes for healthy markets. The members of the Carbon Coalition that have contacted the Convenors since the recent launch of Carbon Link have had many questions, but are united on one position: that they welcome new trading systems and encourage anyone willing to have a go.

Every initiative stirs up the market, puts the issue on the front page, and puts pressure on the 'carbon trading sceptics' to justify their opposition with facts.

The Kyoto principle of "Transparency" requires that all parties be able to see the structure of the abatement and the offsets involved. All new trading systems should be subject to the same scrutiny, if only because bad publicity arising from a poorly-structured program.

For this reason, the Carbon Farmers of Australia system will be explained on this site soon.
