Don't Trade Your Values

Don't waste your money on organizations that support carbon trading schemes. This program sets carbon quotas for companies, sometimes even countries. However, if a company has not reached its quota, it can actually sell the remainder to another organization, thereby allowing someone else to pollute. These schemes don't reduce overall emissions; they simply redistribute them.
