HOLLYWOOD'S wealthy liberals can now avoid any guilt they might feel for consuming so much non-renewable fossil fuel... This year's Oscar goodie bag contained gift certificates representing 100,000 pounds of greenhouse gas reductions... It reminds us of the era when rich Catholics paid the church for "dispensations" that would shorten their terms in Purgatory.

So if I buy a "carbon credit" (and has anyone heard how much these cost???) then I am free to create even more greenhouses gasses? Am I the only one who thinks that these "credits" is just another scam with a scam?
I found my certificates on a thread called Carbon Offsets Cheap. Best thing I ever did. I'm a new man I tell ya. I did not calculate my carbon footprint but I think 100,000 pounds will hold me for the year. If not, I will print more.
Is it like getting divinity credentials from the Universal Life Church?
Are they from Algore's company?
The libs and their reflections in the media are now going to play up this carbon credit [crude word for feces].
Liberals seem to live in a world of their own in which they keep repeating nonsense syllables such as "carbon neutral", "bush is hitler", "cheney is bad", "stole the election", "global warming", "Jesus' bones", "bla bla bla".
Hey Doc, algore bought the carbon-credits from himself!
It's a giant scam! ........... FRegards
How, exactly, does buying 'carbon credits' reduce pollution? It's interesting that leftists support a scheme which lets the wealthy to skate all responsibilty by buying what are essentially indulgences. For life of me I don't understand how the liberal house of cards survives all these inconsistencies and double standards.
"The best way for these eggheads to help the environment would've been to stay home."
Not only for the environment's sake! Think of all the poor, hungry children they could have fed with the millions of dollars they spent on themselves for that one night.
Hmmm, there seems to be a market among self-flagellating lefties. I need to pay-off my student loan and lefties are stupid enough to buy these things...
Scams R his middle name
Now I know what I'm gonna get everyone for Christmas next year! The "Human Fund" contribution cards were getting old anyway.
And it's really sad that they have influenced kids out there to ride bicycles thinking they're going to help polar bears from drowning.
How much to nail Tanya Roberts without having to do more that a week in Purgatory?
It'll be the liberal ENRON.
LIBERAL MATH: 2+2=5, as long as you feel good about yourself.
I can honestly see someone applying the Amway system to carbon credits. Wanna start a downline? :-)
ENRON for liberals.
It's not a movie, but Al Gore plays Ken Lay.
I'm gonna make "Carbon Credit Wheels", modeled after Tibetan prayer wheels. You just give it a spin on your way out the door in the morning, and you're all set for the day! Two spins if you own a gas-guzzler.
(No offense to Tibetans...)
