Pseudo Science Update

Yesterday's post on tree offsets started a good conversation with Adam and Tom Arnold at Terrapass. Apparently Adam's post was part of an ongoing, and now that I've read the others I find we're on the same page.
In particular, take a read through Adam's Rules of the road for carbon offsets: the trouble with trees. It's a more complete treatment of the topic than I provided yesterday.
Bottom line is still the same: if you're buying offsets, know where they're coming from. It's up to you, but I'd stay away from the trees.
