Human Offsets

July 2, 2008

What do you think? I was reading about the carbon offset business and all I could think of is what a scam. So we are going to score people for doing the right thing, give them a credit and let them sell it to people who don’t want to do the right thing.

So I got to thinking. Why not a human offset business? Why couldn’t we score kindness or helpfulness to other humans, the helping hands we give, give it a cash value and sell those to people who don’t want to be help others?

Billion dollar market? Could we get a kyoto Protocol for that?

What a bunch of snake oil.

The answer to our problem is still the same. Creation does groan at our abuses, thank goodness creation is smart enough to know better. What a joke.

Anyone read much on this? What impact do you think it will have on the world? Any? Good idea or bad?

The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God. Romans 8:19-21
