Am curious on folk's thoughts about carbon credits... and whether its sort of a greenwashing thing going on. The FTC has launched an investigation into whether there is much potential for fraud, and I really think there might be.... I've looked at some of the carbon credit companies, and most of them don't tell you what they do with your money. You pay your $10 to offset your emissions, or your airline flight, or whatever, and then it just sort of heads to this black hole and you feel good about yourself. For all we know, these guys are taking private jets to Cabo!
I don't buy carbon credits for this reason; preferring to lower/offset my emissions by planting my own trees, reducing my travel, turning off the lights, etc.
What does everyone else do?
