Carbon credits and liberal hypocrisy


Carbon credits are all the rage amongst the environmentally conscious, but this column in points out that while carbon credits might be well meaning, they’re essentially a way for liberals to assuage their guilt while still just firing as many pollutants as everyone else into the atmosphere. Sounds like the indulgences one could pay the church in medieval times in order to absolve oneself of sin. Still, buying carbon credits is better than nothing, I suppose. Meh. Meh, I say!
