Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

All this fuss over carbon emissions that can be offset for 12 cents?

That's not the metric needed. On that price, with Monbiot's figures of per-capita emissions per year after the necessary reduction, the entire world's could be bought up for just $650 million. If something is wrong here, it's not Monbiot's argument.

I am not saying Monbiot's argument is wrong, but what is? (See his article Buying Complacency for a critique of carbon offsets: I still find it too vague)
