Air Travelers may pay their way in carbon fees

The insanity continues to grow…what warped “nature-Nazi” would, voluntarily, walk up to a kiosk and put in their credit card?  What a con! Here’s the story:

Environmentally conscious travelers flying out of San Francisco International Airport will soon be able to assuage their guilt and minimize the impact of their air travel by buying certified carbon offsets at airport kiosks. – to offer fliers the opportunity to purchase carbon offsets.

Here the idea:

…a traveler would approach a kiosk resembling the self-service check-in stations used by airlines, then punch in his or her destination. The computer would calculate the carbon footprint and the cost of an investment to offset the damage. The traveler could then swipe a credit card to help save the planet. Travelers would receive a printed receipt listing the projects benefiting from their environmental largesse.

Who benefits?  San Fran’s Carbon Fund!   Disgusted yet?  But it’s voluntary, so who cares!    WRONG!    They will quickly realize that there are not enough stupid, cock-eyed, nature freaks to raise enough money, therefore, you can count on this being a new mandate under the new Obama administration!
