It’s not only Nigerians that are scamming, it would seem.


Anyone want to buy some carbon?

Scam artists from around the world, capitalizing on lax regulations at the Danish emissions trading registry, have made off with an estimated $7-billion over the last two years, according to Europol.

  1. It would be a lot funnier if the carbon scam were not financed out of my taxes and energy surcharges.
    I guess anyone, even scammers, can probably make better use of the money than governments but even so.

  2. You know what's even funnier? It's taxpayers money (Mostly).

    At least the scammers will put the money back into the real economy.

  3. I'm just hoping that it's another nail in the coffin of carbon credits.

  4. So that's what carbon looks like.
    It doesn't look anything like the stuff we had to knock off our boiler burners, or our diesel valves, back in the good ole days.

  5. Bit different then when we were using heavy oil instead of diesel

  6. I agree with the post - HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa
