"Carbon (Dioxide) trading is now the fastest growing commodities market on earth.....And here’s the great thing about it.

The authors did not survey any readers at the website Skepticalscience, but represent their data and findings as though they did. Lastly, the authors’ calculations in assessing survey exposure, which they base on the same Skepticalscience, are shown to be wrong. ......"
