Carbon Offsets May Have Dramatically Increased Emissions
Tip to Instapundit.
So the whole carbon credit nonsense is pretty much a scam.
Crooks and scam artists got rich, insufferable Greens got to buy indulgences to continue their lifestyles while pretending they have zero carbon footprints, and by their own definitions made the climate worse.
It's a green hat trick!
I've always been contemptuous of the whole carbon credit scam.
Although that seems to completely go over the heads of the people at the Carbon
Oh, and you totally know that Greens will oppose technology to pull carbon from the atmosphere ("A new method for taking carbon dioxide directly from the air and converting it to oxygen and nanoscale fibers made of carbon could lead to an inexpensive way to make a valuable building material—and may even serve as a weapon against climate change.") if the choice is between the Green Religion of enforced poverty to reduce carbon emissions by making other people live simply or a world where we use as much fossil fuel as we like without harming the planet (under their own definitions).
Now go and emit no more.Glory, glory, carbon credit!
