Check the Pixels, but Don’t Lose Sight of the Big Picture
by: Nancy Marshall | September 14, 2023
Voluntary efforts to decarbonize and restore our planet have recently been negatively scrutinized in the media. At the same time, society has observed an incredible number of extreme climate-related events this summer- intense heat domes, the hottest global average monthly temperatures ever recorded on Earth, hurricanes, wildfires, and extreme flooding. Awareness of climate change is higher than ever, yet many media articles continue to attack voluntary action, one of the only tools currently being applied to fight climate change. Action must be taken today; we can’t sit around any longer and wait for GHG compliance to finally occur worldwide.
In our last editorial highlight, we gave you our takeaways from a Bloomberg article, “Why all carbon credits aren’t created equal,” we also promised to keep you informed and share our insights on new developments or articles. So, today, we would like to share a great article that was a comment piece in one of our industry’s global trade publications, Carbon Pulse. We agree with John Connor, CEO of Carbon Market Institute, on not losing sight of the big picture regarding carbon credits.
