Here is the good question Leah is addressing now: Greg F. mentioned the possibility of carbon offsets and the economic drawbacks. I’d also like to at least put it on the radar of the group about the social equity related drawbacks of carbon offsets, i.e., through negative impacts to local, and particularly Indigneous, communities who live in/around the forests where these offsets are located. If GMU is going to pursue carbon offsets, we need to make sure they fully align with our goals of environmental justice.
