(AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais) Seated for photos with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe last Tuesday, Donald Trump couldn’t help but take in his overly extravagant, gilded living room. “Many of the world’s great leaders request to come to Mar-a-Lago,” Trump boasted from an ornate white couch during what was billed as the opening remarks for a bilateral meeting with Abe on trade and North Korea. “They like it; I like it.” The Palm Beach club has become the president’s favorite weekend getaway.

The atmosphere stretches a mere 6.2 miles after which it rapidly loses its air density. So far, we have deemed air to be an endless resource, but that is clearly not the case. Carbon markets are a way to put a price on the real estate that exists above our heads.
