In the category of What The Hell, a new site called CarbonDeductions allows you to INCREASE your carbon emissions. Yep, they let you buy credits that go towards cutting down trees from grasslands, and their goal is to offset all of Al Gore’s “meaningless” carbon credits. What in the world is going on in these people’s heads? Are they that sick and twisted to think its a good idea to cut down more trees just to offset the credits that you or someone else is buying in order to reduce your emissions?
Yes, they are that sick and twisted.
They are selling T-Shirts that say “My carbon footprint is bigger than yours” and “I increased my carbon footprint”. And yes, I am serious.
“The guilt and shame that caused people to buy Carbon Credits in the first place will be placed back on them as we let them know that their actions caused us to nullify their credits. They are the cause of us killing trees; they need to face up to their guilt.”
Um….I don’t even know what to say really other than these are probably the same people that need to drive a giant SUV in order to feel manly or strong. Too bad they think that poorly of themselves.
