I’m a carbon-based lifeform and proud of it – I don’t hate myself anyhow. According to The Economist, the Neo-medieval practice of buying Eco-Papal Greendulgences – commonly referred to by The Goracle and other tree-hugging Greenweenies and EcoTaliban as “Carbon Offsets” – it is teh boomerang:
If you are salving your conscience by buying carbon offsets, which allows you to cheerfully emit 20 times more than the average person, then even a conservatively estimated rebound effect means that carbon offsets are increasing the amount of emissions.
Har-har-har – Go carbon! Go carbon!
