Have you booked a holiday overseas and feel you need a way to justify your expansive carbon footprint? Have plenty of money and lots of good words to say about protecting the environment that does not involve sacrificing your overseas holiday? Think you can fool your friends and yourself into thinking you are protecting the environment? Then carbon offsetting is for you!
So you think that your conscious is clear cause you pay money to pump more carbon into the environment? You might be fooling yourself and your friends but we both know carbon offsetting is not protecting the environment. Stop flying that will help save the planet!
Many people including Extinction Rebellion XR activists think that their personal carbon footprint is not the problem. It is other peoples carbon footprint that is the problem! How ridiculous!.
Off course it is your right to express with tears anger and protesting your fears for the imminent extinction of the earth but think about it for a moment. Extinction? Do you really think carbon offsetting is the response to imminent extinction? You may be kidding yourself and your friends justifying your lifestyle choices with carbon offsetting but carbon offsetting is simply a farcical excuse to allow you to blame everyone else for death of the planet whilst you swan off on your holidays!
Its okay little children we can still fly off on holiday cause I use carbon offsetting to save the planet instead! Its peoples shameful lifestyle that is killing the planet. If only they heard about carbon offsetting. Then the ice caps would not melt and the air around Heathrow would be simply devinely healthy.BusinessRiskTV
If you think there is a real extinction threat then instead of a voluntary carbon offset that allegedly counteracts the damage your life is doing to the planet you should be doing less damage to the planet.
If you think there is imminent threat of planet extinction instead of using your money to restore the damage you have forced on the planet why not just not damage the planet.
Carbon offsetting is to designed to give you an excuse to fly off on holiday when your children ask if your flight is helping to kill the planet. Carbon offsetting if you believe in extinction threat is actually a very dangerous tool that is more likely to do harm than good. Your money would be better invested in not doing damage in the first place.
Carbon offsetting is only offering flyers and the like a way out of their environmental green guilt. It is not saving the planet. It is making the damage to planet worse and you know it really. The key to saving the planet is to change your behaviour and the way you spend money.
Carbon offsetting is good PR for your unwillingness to make lifestyle sacrifices. It does not help save the planet.BusinessRiskTV
We are not backers of Extinction Rebellion message. Their environmental targets are unreachable and are therefore not smart in any way whatsoever. If there is a growing climate emergency it will be defused by people changing their spending habits not by carbon offsetting.
