ABSTRACT
The author comments on issues relating to carbon offsetting. In dismissing carbon offsetting from the topic of climate protection, the business and consumer confidence in key levers are undermined to address climate change and strip the focus from underneath the development of clean technology in developing countries. One misconception about carbon offsetting is that a stabilization trajectory for climate change requires around 39Gt in reductions between 2007 and 2013.
