RT @LGA_Independent In non-coronavirus news for a moment, this is an interesting piece on carbon off-setting and sequestration. If you’re not aware of @LP_localgov work to help councils respond to the climate emergency, it’s definitely worth taking a look https://t.co/iAMa0aiLkU
"It is likely carbon off-setting will have to form part of the net-zero problem; but it should be considered as a last resort"
