Investigating Forest Carbon Offsets

Climate compensation and carbon offsets are widely used but the actual impact is not always easy to track. Its very important that media review and investigate possible faults in this system. Fake carbon offsets needs to be exposed. According to The Guardians investigation more than 90% of rainforest carbon offsets by biggest provider Verra carbon standard are worthless “phantom credits” that does not not represent carbon reductions. Verra has responded that the findings are untrue because survey is based on studies that use methods that do not take into account project-specific factors that cause deforestation. The truth will be unveiled sooner or later, having a discussion about how Carbon Offsets are used is a good thing. Thank you The Guardian for your investigation into this important subject.
