Re: “Jerry Brown's Cap-and-Trade Program Isn't Working

Ronald Stein's screed reminds me of the Mark Twain quote, "reports of my death are greatly exaggerated." People have been saying California's on its last leg for decades.

California and Quebec released results today for the November 2017 auction which showed steady prices well above the floor for the second auction in a row. The November auction was also the second in a row to sell out of allowances. Both outcomes are a reflection of the secure market that is now set to run through 2030, and demonstrate that the design features of cap and trade are working as expected to maintain a strong and stable program.

November Auction At-a-Glance

Approximately $862,407,989 raised for the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund to invest in a number of programs including clean transportation, urban greening, and improving local air quality.

All current vintage allowances were sold of the 79,548,286 offered for sale, including 15,909,657 allowances that were previously unsold in 2016. This is the first auction including held allowances.

Current vintage allowances sold at $15.06, $1.49 above the $13.57 floor price. This is 31 cents higher than the August clearing price.

All future vintage allowances sold of the 9,723,500 offered for sale. These allowances will not be available for compliance use until 2020. For the second auction in a row, future vintage allowances sold out above the floor price, showing strong confidence in the cap-and-trade program after 2020.

Re: “Get Away and Spread Some Cheer

When all the "you must go there" types have gone elsewhere, peace and quiet returns to my neighborhood. Its true beauty reemerges.

Then I find I have gotten away from what is most annoying and irritating about contemporary urban life: the presence of all those fast lane travelers obeying orders to hit the road.

Re: “Hasta Muerte Serves Coffee with a Side of Resistance

I apologize for not making my comment clear Eric Sisneros.

I do not mean to be critical or disrespectful of anyone as individuals, as entrepenures or as millennials. The owner's model of cafe as community meeting spot is great. I live nearby and walk/drive by FV and E27 a dozen times a day for 25 years. My comment doesnt come from judging intent. Im an old head. It comes from my own experience and observations. Too often community is raised against things and nothing more. Ive seen it neighborhood watch groups before. By opening their space to groups, the owners take on a responsibility. Who uses the space and to what ends. Man, stuff is changing so F- ing fast we have grey areas that require extra thought and sensitivity to navigate. People with good intentions need to be especially mindful in order to stay true to those intentions. Its humbling and hard.

BTW anyone old enough to open their own joint aint 'youth', they are the adult citizenry making It happen! i wish them all the best.

Re: “Why Oakland Should Cut Off ICE

A surprising number of comments from Oakland's Nazi population. I much prefer "illegals" to Nazis.

With respect to the fans, the East Bay still says "Good riddance" to the Raiders and league they rode in on.

Re: “Why Oakland Should Cut Off ICE

I have lived in Oakland for 30 years. I have been the subject of four crimes, all of them minor. None of the criminals were undocumented immigrants; all of them were born in the US. Don't tell me that ICE is protecting me.

Re: “Highland Hospital Surveillance Stirs Concerns

Checking ID is one thing; making license plate data available to any registered govt agency, including ones that police us against our will, is another. We are a nation founded on securing citizens against unwarranted police and govt actions.

Re: “New Ballpark Could Devastate Lake Merritt's Birds

The ball park should stay exactly where it is now! at the Oakland Coliseum site. It should be developed similar to LA live. This should've been done years and years and years ago! this is the same problem we have with career politicians not looking out for the best interest of the city! change must come
