Dedicated to the balanced discussion of global warming
I have often complained that carbon offset credits just don’t make sense. I don’t think that they will do anything to create better behavior and think it is simply a shell game that will only end up lining someone’s pockets.
But I appear to be in the minority in this view. So I ask those that disagree with me isn’t what is good for the goose good for the gander as well? I just found this website:
What is Cheat Offsetting?
When you cheat on your partner you add to the heartbreak, pain and jealousy in the atmosphere.
Cheatneutral offsets your cheating by funding someone else to be faithful and NOT cheat. This neutralises the pain and unhappy emotion and leaves you with a clear conscience.
This site says that it is satirical, which is good. But, shouldn’t it be real? If one believes that you can cheat on emissions with offsets, surely you can do the same with sex.
