Of course they do make massive amounts of dough on this silly scam. That was always the point.
It's a scam, a shellgame for the guillible and lazy-minded, a way of making money without delivering any benefit to anyone else, nor to the effect claimed by the snake oil hucksters (to allegedly reduce emissions of carbon dioxide).
You know, we could sell "get out of jail free" cards to be used by their purchasers to commit crimes and use 'em to escape legal consequences if caught. But those who sell them, what's stopping them from commiting crimes and getting away with it? Nothing.
Same thing happens with these so-called "carbon-offset" credits. It means nothing in reality and cannot possibly prevent anyone from spewing however much carbon dioxide they want.
After all, HOW THE HELL ARE THE AUTHORITIES GOING TO BE ABLE TO MONITOR EVERYONE'S CARBON DIOXIDE OUTPUT?
What are they going to do, fit everything, including peoples' mouths and bums, with carbon emission meters? Imagine such ludicrous insanity! It's silly, stupid, absurd and fascist!
Imagine the bureaucratic nightmare. Imagine the cost to the taxpayers.
The more you think of the logistics and the cold, hard reality, keeping in mind how corrupt and incompetent all governments are, the more you come to realize that the whole concept is nothing but a big snake-oil scam!
Only fools buy into the scheme.
