Earth Day: Cheat Neutral

5 Apr

Earth Day Banner

This brilliant video from Cheat Neutral is a clever criticism of carbon offsetting. When I first saw it a few years ago it made me totally rethink the entire concept. Fair Warning: At the very end there is a tiny bit of language that may make this not safe for work (or kids.) April, cover your ears.

Have you ever bought carbon offsets? Did this make you change your mind? What do you think?

    Thanks for posting this, Robin. I have thought this way since I heard about the idea, but never thought of that great analogy!

      Thank Katie! I saw it at the Earth Day film program she convinced me and Blouin to see with her two years ago.
