The carbon market has crashed.

https://news.bloombergenvironment.com/environment-and-energy...
The world’s biggest carbon market is joining the long list of victims of the economic fallout from the coronavirus.

The price of certificates allowing companies to emit carbon dioxide in the European Union has crashed by 40% so far this year, including two drops of more than 10% in the past week. That has erased two years of gains in the market that was worth more than 200 billion euros ($215 billion) last year, when prices were buoyed by ambitious EU climate goals and reforms that had tightened the number of permits that could be sold.

Flanders ‘very concerned’ by EU Climate Law, says environment minister
www.brusselstimes.com/belgium/98726/flanders-very-concerned-...
Flanders’ Environment Minister scolded the EU over its recently unveiled Climate Law, claiming it “unilaterally” revised the Dutch-speaking region’s climate objectives upwards.

Minister Zuhal Demir said Flanders was “very concerned” about the law, which was presented on Wednesday to the EU Parliament during a session attended by teen climate activist Greta Thunberg.

“If Frans Timmermans wants to change the Flemish climate objectives for 2030, he should stand for election in Flanders,” Demir said, referring to the EU Commissioner in charge of the bloc’s climate strategy.

Can the world’s most influential climate report carry on?
www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-01047-8
With science around the world grinding to a halt as a result of efforts to contain the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is struggling to keep the world’s next big global-warming report on track....

The next big report [the AR6] — the IPCC's first in about seven years — is due out next year, and is intended to guide government actions. But that timeline is already under threat due to government lockdowns, travel bans and university closures.

California’s budget cuts include canceling billions in climate change spending
https://ktla.com/news/california/californias-budget-cuts-inc...
California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s proposed budget cuts include canceling billions of dollars in climate change spending, a blow to environmental advocates....

In January, Newsom proposed a $12 billion “climate budget” that, over the next five years, would offer incentives for companies to convert to electric vehicles, give low-interest loans to businesses to clean up their practices and spend billions on projects preparing for floods, droughts and wildfires.

But Thursday, Newsom proposed eliminating most of the foundation for those programs to balance a budget that will have an estimated $54.3 billion deficit.

‘Final blow’ to aviation climate plan as EU agrees to weaken rules
www.climatechangenews.com/2020/06/09/final-blow-aviation-cli...
In the wake of the global coronavirus pandemic, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) called on the UN body responsible for aviation to ease airlines’ obligations to offset their emissions growth under a scheme known as CORSIA.

IATA urged the International Civil Aviation Organisation to change the baseline from which emissions growth will be measured – a move it estimates could save airlines $15 billion in carbon offsetting costs. At a time when the industry is reeling from grounded flights due to Covid-19, airlines argue current rules risk creating “an inappropriate economic burden on the sector”.

On Tuesday, EU member states backed the baseline change, which could see airlines pay nothing for their climate impact until 2024.

==================================================================

Since airlines are not flying much these days (and not causing much climate impact) - it makes sense to limit financial impact on airlines until 2024. They may be back to their 2019 flying numbers by 2024 if they survive.
