Offset criticisms have not stopped being true
Patrick McCully has a great feature in The Guardian about some of the problems with offsets. (No single article can tackle all of them.)
The points are pretty standard:
- At least two thirds of the offset are fraudulent.
- Fraudulent offsets used as permissions to burn coal and increase climate chaos.
- Throw in massive supporting evidence in an entertaining package.
Ho freaking hum, right?
Meanwhile, the world keeps burning. Every ton of offset-enabled coal power makes our climate a little sicker.
