ABSTRACT
The author discusses aspects of the Planet Under Pressure conference held in London, England and his views about carbon offsetting. He asserts that he declined the offer of carbon offsetting because he believes it is dangerously misleading and has no scientific legitimacy. He contends that carbon offsetting only weakens the drive for carbon dioxide mitigation and reduces innovations for lower-carbon emissions.
