Carbon News Roundup Oct 7

Carbon News Sept 29

So we seem to have some colorful changes now. We are still working on some other stuff, especially thinking about removing the jobs section (for now at least; doesn’t fit there unless we can update it). Then, we are also thinking of having CER/EUA prices and some other useful stuff. Basically, we just realize that if our audience needs one thing badly, that’s TIME. So we are thinking on those lines. How can we deliver more by taking less of your time. While we covered around 4 posts daily last month, we were missing a lot of other news in between. And now we are covering a lot more, though we aren’t adding any original stuff. But these snippets save a lot of time. Anyway, let’s see what this site turns into in the next few months. Let’s move on to the news now:
