5 Ways People Are Trying to Save the World (That Don’t Work)
Obviously for this little plan of mine to succeed, I’ll have to do some convincing. I’m not some welfare addict who thinks you just owe me your money. I’m gonna work for it. Through comedy.

Just a taste, re carbon offsets:
Take, for example, the company that sold carbon offsets based on a plan to reduce methane gas at a landfill. It sounded great until investigations revealed that the methane reduction plan was in place long before the offsets were sold. That part of the plan is all well and good, but it completely destroys the whole concept of buying and selling carbon offsets. Nothing was being “offset.”
Man, if we can’t trust a painless “something for nothing” scheme to save the world, what can we trust?
