Carbon scam: the Noel Kempff project in Bolivia | REDD-Monitor
Regular readers will know I have always urged caution with REDD. Other commentators with more knowledge than me, have gone further and said REDD will be a gift to corrupt officials, the Mafia, and money hungry conservation groups.
Now read this: http://www.redd-monitor.org/2009/10/22/carbon-scam-the-noel-kempff-project-in-bolivia/ and be sure to stick with it - the last couple of paragraphs make especially interesting reading.
Talking of money-hungry conservation groups, you will see The Nature Conservancy (TNC) gets special and well deserved attention from Greenpeace. The TNC also got a lot of attention from the author of "Green Inc". And when I say money-hungry, I don't mean they need money; they want it - more, as much as they can get their hands on, which in 2008 was an income in excess of $1billion and they show assets in excess of $4 billion. check it out for yourself http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=4208
IT'S ALL ABOUT MONEY
