Carbon offsets

The Sunday Tribune reported this week that carbon offsets are "not nearly as effective as previously thought". Well, that's something.

I thought carbon offsets were intended to assuage the guilt of celebrities, politicos and trendy wealthy people. I tell you it's a real blow to learn that these people are still feeling guilty when they drive their hummers to the airport to hop on their Gulfstream jets for a weekend of skiing at Vail or wherever.
