ABSTRACT
The article comments on the concept of carbon trading and offsetting which distracts attention from the wider, systemic changes and collective political action that needs to be taken in the transition to a low-carbon economy. It is noted that promoting more effective approaches to climate change involves rejecting the blinkered reductionism of free-market dogma. Some documentation of how offsetting can be used by countries to avoid taking responsibility for meeting their Kyoto targets are also presented.
