Carbon colonialism

Carbon colonialism is a term used by critics of carbon trading to describe how wealthy consumers can use carbon offset’s projects in the North (northern countries) to displace their high-carbon consuming practices by offsetting their emissions cheaply in the South.


By the name of climate change, this trade/barter opens the door to a new form of colonialism. These actions of trading can lead to the acquisition of poorer peoples’ land, their displacement, and impoverishment; practices associated with traditional means of colonial domination.
