Carbon Credits

Saw a great short film the other night, taking the piss from the carbon credit scenario – they started up “Cheat Neutral’, a thing where if you had committed an infidelity, you could pay someone (who hadn’t) to offset your transgression.

It was right on the money. There is no longer the sink available to offset the pollution we produce. It ain’t there, no more. So the desire for western cultures (you and me) to keep on doing exactly what we are doing, and just pay a token concience-tithe, is not going to work. Just like you dont do cancer with a bandaid.
