I have no idea how to parse the long-term implications of this:

Lehman Brothers shut down its carbon emissions trading desk after the bank filed for bankruptcy protection, a source close to the company told Reuters on Monday.

The "source close to the company" declared the sudden stoppage "a bit anarchic." I agree! Lehman had announced that it would keep all operations going as it went through bankruptcy. Guess not.

Any comment on this development, Adam Stein?
