Carbon Offsets Up In Smoke?

According to an article in the Financial Times, "carbon offsets" bought in the encouragement of Algore's "don't do what we do, do what we say" inconvenient truth world of environmental movement may have little - if any - benefits to the global environment.

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

"The FT has also found examples of companies setting up as carbon offsetters without appearing to have a clear idea of how the markets operate."

"Carbon offsetters" are even paying corporations to clean up their own affordable messes.
