We recommend rereading the publication, “The Carbon Market: Planting More Problems,” written by Larry Lohmann in 2000. This document analyzes the state of the climate crisis and the different approaches to address it. Among its main criticisms, the publication shows that no matter how exaggerated the level of carbon emissions is, any disparity becomes legitimized with the tree plantation approach to emissions offsets. Furthermore, tree plantations allow for greater accumulation of money. Meanwhile, communities and territories in the Global South suffer from the consequences of this model.
