As a liberal, I guess I'm supposed to be in favor of offsets/cap-and- trade/whatever you want to call it. I'm not. If there are standards, let everyone live up to them. There is no good reason to let business and wealthy individuals off just because they can pay. Obey the law, meet the standards, or pay like any other jamoke on the block. Neo-liberals/pro-business liberals/progressives are too willing to give the advantaged more advantages. That's conservative/neoconservative thinking/policy. The hell with it and the people who support it.

Soooo...! Otherwise well-meaning green Americans pay extra to subsidize competing economic development in China and India.

As more data develops from climate science, the basic greenhouse gas premise looks less probable to start with.
