Is Carbon Neutral Oil Really Possible?

Public Policy

The industry needs to address questions such as “which emissions are accounted for, what methodology is employed in the emissions measurement and verification, and how the emissions are priced—either through a carbon credit or a carbon tax


  • The terms ‘carbon neutral’, ‘carbon off-set’ or ‘carbon off-set compensation’ indicate that company has engaged in a transaction to ensure that an amount of carbon dioxide equivalent to that associated with the production, delivery and usage of the fuel has been removed from the atmosphere through a nature-based process or emissions saved through avoided deforestation.”


  1. Carbon-offsetting approaches do not always advance net-zero goals and are difficult to calculate
  2. According to experts; Saving forests from deforestation does not equal removing the carbon footprint of an LNG cargo, experts
  3. While an important tool, offsetting cannot be considered as a substitute for direct emissions reductions by corporates, but as a complement.
  4. There are several issues with nature-based projects to offset emissions.
    1. There isn’t a universal methodology and regulation about calculating the Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions of an LNG cargo.
    2. There isn’t a universal methodology to calculate if the avoidance of deforestation in an African country would have saved as much emissions as an LNG cargo generates during its entire value chain, from natural gas production to end use.


  1. Transparency and uniformity will help alleviate fears of greenwashing—that cargoes are being marketed as environmentally friendly when they are not, either due to poor carbon credit quality or erroneous GHG measurement and accounting,

    Quebec and Canada don’t have long before it collapse because of the lack of Whites people of quality. I love watching Quebec struggle and suffer. Waiting for gasoline shortage.

    I am happy to say that I have made a small contribution to the acceleration of the collapse of Quebec and Canada. Don’t need to say thank you. I am happy to help you.

    I went to do groceries shopping. Park next to a guy driving a Telsa. Look at him with a deeming face, meaning not another one of these. The guy and girlfriend both put sun sunglasses on and mask to do groceries shopping.

    Come out of the grocery store. one man walking toward me with eyes closed again.

    I don’t believe in peak oil anymore. We really live in a holographic VR reality.

    I took a picture of my self on my laptop. I don’t see any thing abnormal. These people seem to see me different then I see my self. It is like they know you are not one of them. It is almost like I am flashing out big time.

    Important development from the storage front: spectacular new battery from Germany:

    Key fact: energy density 0.56 kWh/kg.

    Car batteries could become a factor 3.5 lighter!

    Tesla 2016: 100 kWh, 625 kg

    In the near future, that could become 179 kilo!!

    Longer range electric flying, already an option over 400 km, could come within reach.

    Is a perpetual motion machine possible? LOL

  5. Cloggie on Tue, 17th Aug 2021 11:08 pm 

    Yes makati1 perpetual motion machines are entirely possible. I am in close personal, and regular contact with an Israeli engineer, who happens to be Israeli, that emails me with regular updates on the progress on his working prototype of a net positive energy engine. It utilizes atomic and sub-atomic particles, but that is all I am allowed to say about it here. He assures me it will ready for mass production by 2030 or possibly 2035 at the latest. If you wish, I can ask him about adding you to his mailing and donation list.

    Cloggie, all you are “closely in contact with” are your meds/drugs/alcohol and your keeper in the psycho ward. Your mental state has failed and you are in Alice’s Wonderland along with the guy who claims to be an engineer in the next bed down the hall. Let me know when you meet Alice. ^_^

    Mearsk of Denmark will launch its first carbon-neutral container ship of 172 m and 2100 TEU in 2023. Fuel: methanol, produced in Denmark with pv-solar. This will transform the entire shipping world:

    Actually the sun is perpetual enough for all practical purposes.

  10. makati1 on Fri, 20th Aug 2021 4:23 pm 

    Peaky, but the sun is burning out and will be gone in a few billion years. Of course, we humans may not even be here in 2100.

    Not to mention that one blast of solar radiation could take out our modern civilization in a blink. So could a pole reversal. Or asteroid. Not to mention the climate changes coming. That death would be slower but just as meaningful.

    Oops! I should have said: “That death WILL be slower…” Nothing i going to change human consumption of FFs until….

    For nature loving, law-abiding, tax-paying green fascists, reading/viewing the news from Anglo media is a pure joy!

    Take Bill Maher:

    “Monologue: Graveyard of Empires | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO)”

    Bill knows his history and correctly puts the American empire where it belongs, namely in the garbage bin of history, next to the British and Soviet empires. Yep, those here:

    The globalists (communists), the diversity mongers, the XXL imperialists, the holo-hoaxers, together the worst disaster in the history of the white race. The Taliban got rid of the globalists, giving the good example to the rest of the world to do the same.

    In other news, the Netherlands, that Anglo-1.0 base country (UK is 2.0 and US 3.0) was the first country to turn from Anglo into Euro, shortly after the war, facing new geopolitical facts, after the US kindly stripped us of our empire, like it did to all European empires, even including the British one.

    Now it looks like that there is a 2nd country to do so, Scotland:

    “Indyref2 listed as first priority in SNP-Scottish Greens co-operation deal”

    Once Scotland will have broken away from London, expect Ulster and Wales to run for the exits as well.

    Biden has a second Tehran hostage crisis at hand. Where the French prepared for the withdrawal months in advance, both the US and UK were caught by surprise and have hundreds (thousands?) of their citizens trapped in Kabul. Nice ransom-ware.

    This just in from the major of Londondinistan:

    “London is ready to welcome as many Afghan refugees as possible. To play our part, we’re asking the Government to work with us to ensure that local councils have the right capabilities to help families resettle safely. Now is the time to act.”


    Andrew Neil blasts US government for Afghanistan:

    “Biden tells reporter ‘I can’t remember’ the first part of his question, calls the Qatar capital ‘Daho’ and is criticized for being in an ‘alternate reality’ on the Taliban in another concerning speech”

    Poor man, he should be playing golf, preferably not near a greenhouse.

    “‘What is going on here?’ FoxNews’s Tucker Carlson demands to know why top Dems and liberal news outlets including CNN have turned on Biden amid Afghan crisis and claims president’s closest advisers know he’s ‘senile'”

    The US deep state is now turning onto Biden. The plan always has been to get a woman of color in the White House, while circumventing the election process. It is all about conditioning whitey to get used to black rule.


    We in continental Europe must use Brexit and Russia to finally distance ourselves from this nightmare.
