How can carbon markets help with our national debt?

    Carbon offsets are an invention of the Kyoto Protocol, an international initiative to counteract the increasing production and subsequent carbon emissions on a worldwide scale. By requiring companies and countries to pay for carbon credits, many organizations are losing money by being environmentally wasteful and profiting by making positive, green changes to their practices, production, and facilities. It’s a very complicated concept, which is why many people believe that carbon offsetting is a scam, or a ploy to benefit developed countries while further debilitating poor, developing countries. It’s important to not think of this concept on a national level, but rather on a worldwide scale.

    Bottom line, though, is that when we go green, we ultimately save money, and in turn we profit more and more in the long run, financially as well as environmentally.
