About Ensuring Carbon Offset Integrity

Overall, a superb course. Dr. Trexler‘s comprehensive knowledge allows him to simplify a fairly muddy discussion. He’s able to take a big subject and boil it down to the essential simpler parts. This is a huge plus for viewers. I especially liked the non-polemic tone. This is clearly an educational course, not a partisan viewpoint. Well done!

I really appreciated the Climatographers' Carbon Offsets Course. It’s amazing how hard it is to find good resources and thinking like this on carbon offsets. None of my typical channels/NGOs surface things like this!

When it comes to climate change, few mitigation efforts have been as popular or as contentious as carbon offsets. The arguments involved are many, complicated, and polarizing. This course will synthesize much of the carbon offset thinking and literature of the last 30 years and point you to hundreds of hours of carbon offsets knowledge curation in the Climate Web.
