Re: Global Warming right - I don't geddit?
Carbon credits have always sounded sleazy to me, it's unfortunate that wherever there is a possibility for money to be made, someone will bend the truth to allow more of it to happen.
It's big business which is the worst and dirtiest at such times, the rewards are biggest and there's a greater possibility of taking the money and running while leaving a smokescreen behind.
The whole offsetting business as a new poorly understood area is rife for scams, personally I don't think any of it should exist as it allows individuals and companies to think that as long as they pay a little, it negates the pollution that they produce. It doesn't matter how much you pay me, if you piss in my well and it's the only source of water I have, you've still pissed in my well.
We shouldn't allow it to take our eye off the ball however and it doesn't mean that man made global warming isn't happening.
Snowcat - it's funny how journalists and politicians put a spin on things as here in the UK, we all think that WE are leading the world in cutting emissions!
