Carbon Disclosure Project

What if you have to put up with a dumb local government and use this kind of information for greenwashing and politicking. Today, I decided to review the verification requirements for the Carbon Disclosure Project or CDP, particularly the verification requirements for an upcoming CDP verification contract and I suddenly came across this link about local governments becoming superheroes in reporting, mitigating and adapting to climate change. It seems I don’t see in the list Puerto Princesa City which already spent some publicity funds declaring its carbon neutrality. Thank goodness I don’t belong to that sector that requires you to be more public and less technical.  That kind of mentality has a questionable level of assurance.

I just don’t understand the disconnect, how people look at things in mutual exclusion rather as one single interconnected system. Well, a number of people don’t understand me either, would that require mutual acceptance? As usual, reading through the news in a number of dailies give us a reflection of how policy making is undeniably unguided and individual interests abound without concern for the common good. This is a failure based on my training in economics.
