Absolute Moral Authority for less than $20

Who knew the Greenest. Convention. Ever. would be such a spectacular failure?

Results of a program using Aspen’s Canary Initiative to sell carbon offset credits to Democratic National Convention attendees are a little underwhelming.

The program, set up by the DNC Host Committee through the Denver Convention and Visitors Bureau and rolled out about a week before the convention started, raised a total of $18.34 worth of Canary Tags, offsetting 0.9 tons of carbon emissions.
In contrast, it's estimated that Joe Biden released 43.7 tons of carbon emissions in his vice presidential acceptance speech.
