Carbon offsets have little impact on global warming

A joint investigation by The Christian Science Monitor and the New England Center for Investigative Reporting "found that individuals and businesses who are feeding a $700 million global market in offsets are often buying vague promises instead of the reductions in greenhouse gases they expect."
