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?)]
Mortimer J. Flunderbunt, Jr. July 25, 2010 I greatly appreciate the 1000 free carbon offsets. However, I have a question: in your FAQ, you speak of "... using one less square of toilet paper every time we use the rest room." Surely it should be one fewer square instead? Pedantically yours, etc.
[Response: Right you are. Corrected.]
Barbara (Penna.) May 13, 2010 I shifted over to solar power for my home last year. The salesman told me I could make up the installation cost in energy savings over about 8 to 12 years, but after running it thus far I am estimating needing roughly 31 years just to recoup my initial costs (yes, really). Since figuring this out, I have spent every single day regretting the $45,000 I invested in home solar, but at least I was able to get 32,579 carbon credits for free through your site, making me slightly less likely to want to throw myself off a bridge in remorse/regret at my stupidity. I hope to be back for more credits after payday, if I can still afford my Internet connection. Obama (DC) April 5, 2010 How the heck can we generate any tax revenue from these credits if you are giving them away for FREE!? nik (Oregon) March 8, 2010 Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I was worried about my carbon emissions but after purchasing 1,000,000,000,000 free credits I can rest assured that no matter what I do or where I go I have offset my emissions. I may even share some with the Gore family. Maurice J Smalley (Mount Maunganui New Zealand) February 23, 2010 Congrats FCO you have certainly been a market leader. The bad news is that Climategate is helping the opposition catch up fast...Very soon ALL Carbon Offsets will be worth Zilch Zero and down the toilet like all good scams should be ! Dunder Mifflin (The Office) January 15, 2010 We print offsets to offset our paper we print our offsets on to offset our paper use. Rusty McLeod (West Coast) December 26, 2009 The only trouble I found with the Free Carbon Offsets site, was that I had difficulty finding out how many offsets I needed to acquire in order to neutralize my Hummer. Other than that, the abundant availability of free offsets is a wonderful discovery. BJ Feng (Santa Monica, CA, USA) December 22, 2009 Thanks FCO, you've made it as easy for ordinary people to offset carbon as for Bono or Al Gore. Now we can go about our lives knowing that we've saved the Earth. Though we might never get to fly in a private plane or have a limo pick us up to go to the latest climate change conference, we can now pollute as freely as those who do attend the conferences. I am a good person, I love the Earth, and the carbon offsets from your site proves it. For skeptics and deniers, shame on you. Don't you know that since the opening of FCO, global temperatures have fallen? IT'S WORKING! Thank God, or the Earth, for FCO! Tim (more human than human) December 15, 2009 Thanks, FCO! I got enough credits to cover Nancy Pelosi's internet use too. Every time you use google to search for skeptics it burns a tonne of carbon don't y'know!
