more crisis = less carbon emissions?

Looks like a joke, after few years calling for cuts in carbon emissions across the Earth,  this economic crisis is leading to falling carbon emissions by itself. It’s a fact that while the factories close and consume decreases worldwide, we are closer than ever to the fixed milestones: so the economic crisis has already done more to reduce carbon emissions than the past 10 years of climate policy.

Here there is an interesting article about the current Climate Crunch, taken from Carbon Trade Watch Site. This article explains that still we can not bank on the recession to save the planet, or to redistribute responsibility for tackling climate change more justly, and that the ‘carbon’ that is traded is in fact a euphemism for a range of greenhouse gases produced in very different ways.
