New Campaign and Website launched to tackle growing carbon trading fraud and injustice
Sky Money is a website about explaining, critically discussing, and taking action against unjust Carbon Markets in the Asia Pacific region. This website is part of an ongoing climate justice campaign by Friends of the Earth Sydney.
“Sky Money” is a term that forest dependent peoples in PNG have used to describe carbon trading, when so called “carbon cowboys” have come offering them exploitative deals to use their local forests as carbon offsets. However, the problems with Sky Money run much deeper than the issue of “carbon cowboys.” For us the term Sky Money encapsulates the bogus nature of carbon markets. Carbon markets are a false “solution” to runaway climate change.
