UK: The most profitable green industry? Theft.

October 4, 2013

British prosecutors say six men have been charged over a massive pollution credit fraud scheme that cost the British government many millions of pounds.

The Crown Prosecution Service says that four of the men created a string of dummy companies that traded in carbon credits, typically certificates which give polluters the right to emit a set amount of carbon dioxide in return for money paid to companies that fight climate change by taking steps such as planting trees or switching to renewable energy sources.
