Define the term carbon offsetting: an absolute joke.

What is carbon offsetting?
Carbon offsetting is the practice of paying organisations, on your behalf, money towards projects that compensate for your emission damage. For instance, an oil or airline company may donate $15 million annually to an organisation that reforests land or improves carbon capture operations. Companies like Delta Airlines during 2017 – 2019 purchased 7.8 million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide (Co2).

Why the term ‘net-zero’ is nothing to get excited about:

What does ‘net-zero’ mean?
Net-zero refers to eliminating all greenhouse gas emission production or funding activities that offset however many emissions are produced e.g. tree planting or carbon capture. Doing the above would greatly lower the overall consequences of global warming, helping maintain the fragile ecosystem and human health. Many experts today believe the globe must reach net-zero by 2050 to avoid any catastrophic threats from global warming. However, experts believe such an accomplishment would require a triple in yearly clean energy investments by 2030 to around $5.63 trillion AUD ($4 trillion USD).
