Green prince leaves a giant CO2

Poor Prince Charles, first forced to cancel a vacation due to being green-mailed, and now being held accountable for his carbon footprint:
"THE Prince of Wales has been found wanting in his efforts to save the world from global warming. Charles and his royal household have generated more than 1,500 tons of carbon dioxide in the past year, according to an independent audit.

The prince will this week announce that he and his household are carbon neutral – but campaigners claim this is “greenwash” because, instead of cutting his emissions, he is simply paying to offset them."
That is the problem with claiming to be green. People are seeing through the carbon offsetting game. They expect you to reduce your carbon emissions. Imagine that! Expecting people to have the deed follow the words.
