Please tell me that our yoot aren’t going to fall for this scam-o-rama.…
Planes generate tons of CO2, carbon dioxide emissions, which experts agree are a leading cause of global warming. StudentUniverse.com wants to help students see the world, but also wants to do its part to help protect it. In addition to being a 100% Carbonfree business, the company will introduce ECO2llege Class as an option in fall 2007. By choosing to fly ECO2llege Class, students can help offset the global warming impact of their flights by purchasing renewable energy credits (RECs) that fund renewable energy projects around the U.S.A.
Give me a break. This “carbon free” stuff is a bunch of hooey. And these carbon offsets crap have become the biggest Ponzi scheme ever created. I defy someone to actually bring me some of the carbon that has been saved… bring me a bottle of it. Or a tree that didn’t die because of “carbon offsets”. Or an ozone molecule that wasn’t destroyed because of the magic of “carbon offsets”.
