Is carbon-offsetting just eco-enslavement?

All good people should read this article—and all who consider themselves environmentalists. It condemns mainstream environmentalism as misanthropic, anti-development, and devoted to keeping the citizens of undeveloped nations in abject poverty and daily suffering.

A quotation:

Feeling guilty about your two-week break in Barbados, when you flew thousands of miles and lived it up with cocktails on sunlit beaches? Well, offset that guilt by sponsoring eco-friendly child labour in the developing world! Let an eight-year-old peasant pedal away your eco-remorse…

I agree 100% with everything in this article.

    I would write a clever response to this, but unfortunately I’m about 18 hours behind on this month’s treadle quota. Too much summer driving and that flight to Oakland really did the trick!


    Carbon Slave

    I’m thinking about changing the blog name to “Curly Treadle”, in an attempt to salve my carbon-conscience without doing any physical treadling of my own.
