Carbon offsetting is getting popular among the guilty rich. But in truth the logic just doesn't add up.
So rich people fly around the world and pay for trees to be planted to soak up the equivalent CO2 that their flights have generated.
So what is this saying to the rest of us?
It seems that it is just a selfish smug "well global warming isn't my fault".
If these people really cared about CO2 why aren't they paying to offset the emmissions of the rest of us?
Do they think that they will only be affected by the CO2 that they have caused to be generated?
Offset is a bizzare concept - so I would like to point out that its proponents are in the all together...
