Simply brilliant. Emily forwarded this on to me – not sure if she was giving me ideas or providing me with a warning, but its brilliant none the less.

For only a few dollars Cheat Neutral provides a service that allows your to cheat guilt free. “Cheatneutral offsets your cheating by funding someone else to be faithful and NOT cheat.”

I admit, I’ve been loured by the siren-song of Carbon offsets before. I want to minimize my impact on the world, but there are just sometimes when I need to use a car or take flights (I’m not about to give up Christmas in Manitoba). So, being able to “offset” those uses is desirable, but silly. You can’t undo that damage. If I want to cut down on my emissions, I should be making lifestyle changes, not paying someone to plant trees in Zimbabwe.
