Why am I posting an almost year-old article about a second-rate British pop band's carbon offset attempts? Because Algore's company, Global Investment Management LLP, also uses this same company for their supposed carbon offsets. This might also be the company that GIM used to supposedly offset the Algore house's "carbon footprint" on Algore's behalf.

It has a very questionable past.

If you think their past is questionable, just look at their future.

"They do it for their interests, not really for reducing emissions. They do it because it's good money,"

When it's practiced by socialists, capitalism gets a bad name.

As in all of Liberalism, it is the thought that counts not the results.

Reminds me, I have to go chop some firewood tomorrow, another cold spell is moving in this week.

"Carbon Offsets" are the biggest scam ever foisted off on the worlds population in the entire history of mankind. You can take your "Carbon Offsets" and forcefully ram them up the cavity where the sun never shines. Any people that buy into this drivel deserve exactly what they will get.

Fascinating!

Thanks for posting this. It's interesting to think that these companies cheat people like that.

4000 ruppees, by the way, is only $90, which doesn't seem that much in view of the scale of fees paid.

Seems like they could have done the job but didn't.
