ABSTRACT
The article reports on the practice of paying for carbon emissions in an effort to offset the damage done by them. Using a parody website "Cheatneutral.com," an Internet site that claims that it can offset the damage done by marital infidelity, British environmental campaigners Christian Hunt and Alex Randall suggest that carbon offsetting is ineffective.
