Offsetting CO2 Emissions Partially Ineffective: Friends of the Earth

Environmentalists from Friends of the Earth (FOE) claim that offsetting carbon emissions is not very a useful strategy if one considers the bigger picture of tackling climate change.

Friends of the Earth Says Carbon Offsetting Ineffective

Although the charity did accept the role of offsetting in the shift towards a low-carbon economy, it was still skeptical about its overall effectiveness in emissions reductions. An FOE representative further added that offsetting may even encourage people to carry on with their emission-generating activities, as they may deem it sufficient to offset emissions rather than cut them.

Ontario Set to Test 3 Carbon Offsetting Projects with Farmers

While all the fuss about carbon tax continues in the Canadian media, we also now have Ontario testing some carbon-cutting pilot projects in the agricultural sector. Ontario signed the Western Climate Initiative not long ago, and the province will probably have a cap-and-trade system by 2012, as all members in the Initiative agree on that.

Ontario Carbon Offsetting Projects

Ontarios plan now is to initiate three pilot projects to offset emissions. The first one will have farmers utilize nitrogen fertilizers in a more eco-friendly way. The second project is about implementation of low-till and no-till practices in agriculture. It is expected that at least 50 farmers will collaborate with the government on these two projects. A third one coming later is about afforestation, which refers to planting of trees in deforested areas.
