Carbon Offsets & the Environment

The Economist has a good post on why carbon offsets aren’t a pass for consuming bad energy.

I’ve stopped publicly advocating for environmental change, mainly because I fly a lot and consume lots of energy. My family’s home is located about fifteen minutes drive from anything, which I bug my parents about constantly. I will continue to advocate for the Pigou Club, higher carbon taxes, and consumption taxes on our nation’s roads.
