The article offers information on climate scientist Kevin Anderson, who has challenged carbon offsets by refusing to fly. It states that he has self-imposed a ban on flying since seven year, which is still continuing. It mentions that according to Anderson, carbon offsets are flawed because greenhouse gases remain in the atmosphere for at least a century and offset projects exist within a carbon-driven economy.
