Carbon trading scandal (number 4)

From the UK Telegraph (and the twighlight zone):

Carbon allowances, Europe’s main weapon against climate change, have an impact on every household, yet the scheme is open to fraudsters and profiteers.
... thieves behind the heist had made off with 500,000 carbon allowances – intangible products worth around €14 each that are the European Union's main weapon against climate change.
... this is the fourth time that the carbon market has been hit with a major scandal.
Hmmm. A scam to steal the intangible products of the global warming scam. Seems fitting.
