Carbon Neutral is Carbon Negative

REDUCTION MUCH BETTER: There's a good article in an online magazine called Environmental Leader. Becoming "carbon neutral" has been taken on by many companies as their way of not adding to the global CO2 emissions crisis. The problem is: how do CO2 emissions get reduced, not stay at their negative level, which increases every year? As the writer George Ahn says: "Carbon neutrality has become the rallying cry for the industry, and while companies are doing a great job of patting themselves on the back for offsetting carbon emissions and planting trees, let’s not forget the fundamental issue here: we continue to deplete our natural resources and increase carbon emissions and it’s astounding how little is really being done to fix that."
