Carbon Trading: Does It Do Anything Besides Make Money?

I've always had serious doubts about carbon trading and whether it actually helps reverse global climate change. This blog by forestry industry critic Chris Lang is a great explanation of how carbon trading doesn't do much besides make money for the same old bankers. I'd even suggest that carbon trading makes matters worse by wasting huge financial resources that merely contribute to more carbon consumption. Global climate change and rising sea levels are a major threat to civilization, coastal communities, biodiversity, and the surfing community. Read my blog post here about possible future scenarios facing us coastal citizens and the rising of the oceans. The reality of rising ocean levels from a surfer's perspective.
