Did you know that Chicago is home to a major force in climate control? The Chicago Climate Exchange is "a voluntary cap-and-trade program for reducing and trading greenhouse gas emissions." Member companies and organizations make a voluntary binding commitment to use a rules-based market for reducing their greenhouse gas emissions, and they receive credits for reductions which can be bought and sold in order to reduce overall emissions. North American trading began this year, and eventually will be opened to the international community.
