Linking Your Fate to Obama

When purchasing some Amtrak tickets earlier today, I encountered a link to an organization selling carbon offsets.  Does anyone else think, after looking at this organization's logo, that they have decided to hitch their wagon to Obama's coattails?  I guess there is an "O" in their name, but groups seldom adopt the fifth letter of a ten-letter word as their initial.

Don't miss some of my past criticisms of double and triple counting in the offset world here and here and here and here.


  1. Dr. T:

    I interpret the cirle or "O" in the logo to signify "offset". Of course, the designers also may hope that some people will look at the "O" and the rising sun over a green land and see Obama and the hope he brings to all (all who know how to play the cap-and-trade game).

  2. Thalpy:

    This makes a much sense as the star registry scheme. By the way, I have a number of grains of sand that you can reserve and name in honor of a loved one. For the princely sum of $50.00 this grain of sand will be your grain of sand for all time, honoring who or what you love most...

    The logo was created in 2006. Maybe Obama hitched his wagon to OUR coattails? If you don't believe me, check out our site on in 06:
