They’re basically offsetting carbon by paying. There’s no such a thing as “carbon neutral”. You just buy someone else’s carbon pollution.

It’s a bit like saying electric vehicles are good for the world…

Well, the ICAO (International Carbon Affiliates Organization) recognizes that Carbon is the chemical backbone of life on Earth and the compounds of Carbon regulate the Earth's temperature, make up the food that sustains us, and provides energy to warm (and cool) our homes, power our helicopters etc. and as such fuels our global economy; in short when Carbon is utilized (ie consumed or burned) the resulting use of such neutralizes said Carbon.  Extrapolation from the foregoing, a helicopter that burns hundreds of liters of hydrocarbons per hour is neutralizing the Carbon at a great rate; logic would then dictate that a helicopter IS CARBON NEUTRAL 🙂.  Next question please...
