What a scam. I dont know which is crazier...paying Duke Energy to offset one's carbon emissions or paying a priest to offset one's sins.

well i'm all for being a good steward of our environment, but that is just a market attempt to cash in on the naiveity of the "green" oriented. so does duke energy suggest to make money two ways for the same thing? i think they are trying to supplement their overhead for future legislation that will force them to off set their carbon footprint.

what mankind has done in the time it has been here is a mere blip on the radar compared to what the earth has done. the earth goes through cycles all on it's on and as we see global warming continue how much do we really know about it?

we can not control the earth as much as we would like to think that we can and companies exploitation of people's fears is shamless? how will we know when mankind's time is up? i think no matter how things change those who live in fear of the end will most likely find themselves at a ripe old age asking themselves just exactly where it was life passed them by.

Send your carbon offset money to me. You'll feel much less guilty with me spending your money rather than mean old Duke Power.

I also promise not to let anyone know just how stupid you are.
