Issues with carbon offsets
The Globe Foundation in Canada has a worthwhile explanation of some of the issues involved in carbon credits and offsetting emissions: ...Offset credits will remain an important method of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Their current problems are symptomatic of a rapidly evolving market and managing these issues will prove challenging for both public and the private sector agencies. Properly implemented, however, carbon offset systems can provide a valuable outlet for businesses, individuals and governments to spread their clean technologies; to encourage sustainable development; and to contribute to a worldwide reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
