Chart of the week
The price of carbon emissions (improperly called “pollution rights”) exceeded €100 per tonne for the first time last week.
The good news is that this price increase is a strong incentive to decarbonize the economy. It is becoming more and more expensive to use fossil fuels. Good news in the long term.
The bad news is that this increase is partly due to the fact that the gas shortage has led to a significant use of coal and therefore to significant purchases on carbon emissions. Bad news in the short term.
