Carrie (UK) February 18, 2012 @Ed of Illinois, are you for real??? Dick (Brisbane, Australia) August 8, 2011 I wasn't sure how I was going to show the Gen-Y iPhone using hippies that I too care for the environment. Rather than upgrading my 12 year old car to a new one, I purchased 666,000,000,000 carbon credits. Thanks FCO for helping me, help you help me save the environment so our leaders find a new way to tax us. Mick (Australia ) July 11, 2011 Already made 30 Million selling them back as derivatives to Indonesian Farmers. BigEngineGuy (Snellville) April 18, 2011 Thanks! I have been worrying about my carbon footprint. I like to drive my three Hummers a lot! I also have a 40 foot cabin cruiser and a twin-engine plane. On top of that, I figured out a way to heat my home (7000 sq. ft.) by burning tires. Any way, I was beginning to worry about my carbon footprint and thinking that I need to cut back. But with your site, I got 1,000,000,000 carbon credits and, therefore, I won't have to worry about it until they run out in 2047. Cole Burner (Land of the Greenwash Government UK) January 31, 2011 Hey, Rioting in the streets reduces global warming. I have just put off my trip to Egypt, so no ride on big jet. Can I cancel my free carbon offsets I didn't just pay for? Hang on, now I will stay at home using electricity and gas to heat the house 'cos it's freezing, unlike Egypt. Sorry, just forget it. Mr. Martian (Mars) January 28, 2011 Before, I thought you Earthlings were busy destroying your planet. Now, I've come to the realization that, because of the use of Free Carbon Offsets, you are actually helping out, along with your buddy Al Gore. Over here on Mars, though, we might need some global warming. It gets much too cold at night... Toodle-loo! Oiao (Liberal Hell) December 10, 2010 All of my Progressivly insane in-laws are now getting a certificate of an amazing amount of (Free) Carbon Offset Credits for Christmas. Thanks. Now I really don't have to wast time shopping. Think I'll throw another tree on the fire and have no gilt at all. Ericka (Costa Rica) October 18, 2010 You guys are great. Really good idea. This shows that we can also offset carbon by doing quite simple things. Keep on helping the planet. There should be more people like you. ;) Idahoway (Idaho) August 20, 2010 Ed from Illinois: Doh! Ed (illinois) August 11, 2010 WOW, Does anyone see something amiss here? The certificate does not give any backup of where the orginal base credit was generated, under what standard, who verified it, when the base credit technology was (wind, solar, LFG, etc.). How much offset is the credit transfering. One ton of CO2, 1 trillanth of a ton of CO2 or even less? The credit they are giving here is baseless and useless. In fact the credit here is nothing but a scam and by printing the credit you now need to go to a legimitate provide or credits and purchase a verified credit to offset printing this one.
[Response: "the credit here is nothing but a scam". A scam implies fraud. There is no fraud here. Everything we offer is free. No one has lost a dime at FreeCarbonOffsets.com, unlike other places that really take your money. As for needing to go to a legimitate provider to offset what you received here, that makes the assumtion that one really exists. See the FAQ for what was done (or what we might try to do) to offset your carbon. (Sarcasm is fun, isn't it?)]

If we human beings learn to see the intricacies that bind one part of a natural system to another and then to us, we will no longer argue about the importance of wilderness protection, or over the question of saving endangered species, or how human communities must base their economic futures – not on short-term exploitation – but on long-term, sustainable development.
