Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is considering a plan to allow heavy polluters to purchase overseas carbon permits (i.e. carbon offsets) to (in theory) neutralize their carbon emissions.
During 2010, the Christian Science Monitor conducted an in depth investigation of carbon offsets. In the report, the Monitor exposed outright fraud which is tantamount to a system of indulgences used by the Catholic Church.
Even former Vice President Al Gore has made millions of dollars, enriching himself in the carbon offset racket. The below Infowars video shows how the carbon offset scam continued despite the fact it was found to be a fraud.
DISCLAIMER: The edges of the video about elites, bankers, demonizing corporations are ridiculous, but the substance citing mainstream news sources is on point and accurate.
