Don't even get me started on carbon offsetting...such a sham, but one that is promoted and accepted.
Yeah they're dumb. I recently learned they are actually replacing "offsets" with "neutralizers". It basically means the same thing but you can't just throw money at it to buy neutralizers, you have to actually perform the neutralization activity. I guess it's a move in the right direction, if you buy into the whole thing to begin with.
