Is there a problem with a Gold Standard?

How do you start explaining sustainable development?

In my recent trip to the Province of Palawan, I had proposed to the local sustainable development council to now move on to Carbon Credits. As per the staff, they do have difficulty explaining sustainable development to their government officials, moreso the concept of carbon credits.

There’s so much missed opportunities like a pot of gold that no one seems to care about because the pot is full of soot and no one wiuld bother about the gold so no one would get the Gold.
The City of Puerto Princesa has declared that the city is carbon neutral. However, not everyone in that city understands the concept of carbon neutrality. As a rule, any carbon claims must first be verified.
