ABSTRACT
The article discusses the carbon neutrality which is allegedly achieved from carbon offsets or carbon trading. It notes the carbon footprints taken by politicians, celebrities and business leaders in the U.S. by using solar panels and fluorescent lighting, and maybe some trees that inhale carbon dioxide. However, the author believes that carbon trading and carbon offsets are scam and has in fact caused increased carbon dioxide emissions.
