It is time to fight back against the greenhouse gas/ carbon offset credit SCAM.
Then of course we have the old standby:
"Greetings! I am Prince Ngonga from Nigeria. I hope I am not disturbing you, but I need your assistance in a mutually profitable endeavor. I have 500,000 metric tons of carbon offset credits I need to get out of Nigeria. If you can help me out by sending me $5000 to expedite this, I will share the carbon offset credits with you. 250,000 metric tons of carbon emission credits for $5000 is truly a bargain, don't you agree? Please make the check payable to "cash" and send it to #419 Mugu Road, Lagos, Nigeria...."
Meanwhile, for every $1000 people send me, I will promise not to build a coal-fired power plant, not raise 1000 methane-producing cattle, and not employ 100 workers who will have to drive to and from work. (Could someone advise me on what kind of cattle are best not to raise?) Wait a minute, before any Kyotoists ask me for my address so they can send $1000, the previous statement was meant as a JOKE. I figured that I had to point it out, though, as there are doubtlessly thousands of Kyotoists who are stupid enough to take it for an actual offer--after all, they are buying carbon offset credits the way ignorant medieval peasants bought indulgences for their sins. And they shouldn't try to contact "Prince Ngonga" either, as "419" and "mugu" refer to a common Internet scam.
Meanwhile, here is Al Gore's vision statement for the entire U.S. economy:

Interesting comments from Patrick Moore Greenpeace co founder. He's clearly a lefty but he has a lot of intersting things to say about the modern enviromental movement and the junk science of globull warming. He's also praised the USA for refusing to sign on to the Kyoto scam.
Moore outlined the extreme positions of opposing sides of the climate change issue, including the commonly held belief that increases in atmospheric CO2 from fossil fuels' emissions are warming the planet. "Climate change, to me, is one of the most interesting subjects because it points out the limitations of science," Moore said. "Most people think that if you take enough people in lab coats and throw enough money at them, then you can find the answer to any question. Of course that isn't true. Science actually has its absolute limit." He said there are so many variables that trigger climate change - other than CO2 - that it is "impossible to sort out the root cause."

It's that old "send me money and I'll make your life better" scheme!
