emissions trading – the latest scam

carbon trail

Emissions trading is just the latest way corporations can capitalize
on our guilt, by charging a fee to “offset” tons of CO2 emissions by
planting a few trees. What sounds like a good deed is yet another cash grab.
Many airlines, for example, are now letting customers pay a voluntary
emission fee. The extra money suposedly goes to carbon offsetting
businesses, usually tree planting outfits.
