Carbon offsetting involves 'neutralising' the emissions you are responsible for by buying 'credits'.

A spokesperson for Live Earth says: "This might involve buying environmentally sound lightbulbs for a Third World school, planting trees, or installing solar panels in a developing country."

The key words here is " might involve buying"

Has anyone actually looked into where (besides Gore's bank account) all the money has gone??

Have they actually purchased any lightbulbs for Third World schools, planted any trees, or installed solar panels ????

Mo1:

Do they have LIGHTS in some of those 3rd World schools?

planted any trees,

I think I’ll plant a tree in the name of Bon Jovi’s private Jet in Zaire. I think the suffering people of Zaire would feel better about it. (Of course the tree won’t give them a better life)

installed solar panels

I wanted to put a windmill off CAPE COD but it would interfere with sailboats and the view. I guess I’ll have to put solar panel on a hut in Uganda, maybe I’ll do it in the name of Madonna. I bet then if you put a solar panel on a hut there — will the family’s life improve?
