GREEN & GULLIBLE? Carbon Offsets And Credits Create Fraud

Posted on April 21, 2010

CLIMATE SCAM: An investigative report shows that buying carbon credits to reduce your supposed carbon footprint is a waste of money and fuels ripoff schemes that leave beneficiaries out in the cold.

The Christian Sciene Monitor newspaper has completed an exhaustive investigative report documenting how the purchase of carbon offsets or credits fails to do anything constructive about alleged global warming and actually creates a derivative-style market for deceptive promises and practices.

OPERATORS BEWARE: If you are paying for credits as part of a green program, you are warming the pockets of middlemen while cooling your finances. And your carbon offset purchases just got blown out for years to come by the volcano in Iceland.
