So we end up with people putting investments into forestry thinking they're doing something good for the world by planting forests. And yet they are not helping to return forests back, but rather making a commercial investment which is using intensive farming techniques to offset human carbon footprint, not extensive techniques which would offset the carbon footprint and help the ecosystem (at the price of lower returns for the investor).
As to the relevancy of's find? It just reminded me of this issue. While OroVerde isn't interested in highlighting that problem, I do agree that their marketing campaign is plain brilliant.
