❗️ New investigation by @UE@twitter.com and @firstname.lastname@example.org shows: carbon #offsets used by major airlines are based on a highly flawed system!
We need to protect forests AND fly less. 🌳🔽✈️
This is not the first research to show that carbon #offsets do not work.
A 2016 study by @email@example.com for the EU Commission found that 85% of Clean Development Mechanism offset projects have a low probability of actually reducing emissions.
From a systemic point of view, #offsets are even worse than doing nothing!
They contribute to preventing and delaying systemic change. But we need such change to reduce carbon pollution as rapidly as possible and to make a livable future possible!
