Carbon Credits

I had posted a few times before about Al Gore's supposed "carbon neutrality." (Here, here and here.)

This about sums up my theory: "I have to admit, I have a hard time following this whole carbon credit thing. To me, it seems as though carbon credits are simply a way for rich folks to continue all the polluting they want, while looking down their noses at us dirty, dirty little people."

Turns out the whole thing might be a scam:

A Financial Times investigation has uncovered widespread failings in the new markets for greenhouse gases, suggesting some organisations are paying for emissions reductions that do not take place.
