Who’s offsetting whom?

A reminder that the nonprofit world is not, in fact, a world unto itself: the FTC is looking into assertions about carbon offsets advertised by manufacturers and sold by for-profits and and nonprofits alike

This is a reason for skeptics like the Nonprofiteer to be grateful for the notion that for-profit companies can be significant sources of social good: as long as there’s profit (and assuming we elect a Democratic President before this gang can finish repealing the New Deal), there will be federal regulation.  This may not assure that much social good gets done, but it will minimize the amount of out-and-out lying and stealing that takes place.
