ABSTRACT
The article offers information related to carbon offsets. A study shows that the global voluntary offsets market has rapidly increased from one million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent in 2001 to 9.5 million in 2004. The U.S. has less global population but consumes nearly 25 percent of the world's energy resources. Several scientific studies emerged that were uncertain on the notions that trees and other plants absorb carbon from the atmosphere.
