Sky News published this video item, entitled “Is carbon offsetting a long-term solution?” – below is their description.

Chairman of the E3G think tank, Tom Burke, says “it’s a very important tool” in tackling climate change, but only if “people believe it’s real”.

Climate activist Mikaela Loach says instead of carbon offsetting, we should be focusing on cutting emissions.
