A nice research paper from Peter Winters. Extract: "Many English people like the idea of carbon offsets, but are not convinced they work well in practice. Based on our primary research, this document also provides a discussion about how better carbon offsets could be developed and marketed; and, by way of example, explores the case for a credible rainforest carbon offset scheme."
Peter added more in an e-mail to Greenscroll: "In Canada and the U.S., there seems to be a greater level of ignorance about carbon offsets than in England. Flying is much more of a 'hot-button' environmental issue in England than in North America, and I think there is more discussion about offsets over there as well (so far).
"A quick scan of the demographics in Canada indicates that it is university educated, and Liberal party supporters who are most supportive of offsets in Canada."
