Carbon Corruption From Copenhagen

How appropriate that Denmark, home of the upcoming Hopenhagen power grab, would light the way into our glorious green future by showing us the monumental corruption we can expect when the economy is no longer based on producing goods and services, but on convincing bureaucrats that you are serving Gaia. From the Copenhagen Post:

Denmark is the centre of a comprehensive tax scam involving CO2 quotas, in which the cheats exploit a so-called ‘VAT carrousel’, reports Ekstra Bladet newspaper.

Police and authorities in several European countries are investigating scams worth billions of kroner, which all originate in the Danish quota register. The CO2 quotas are traded in other EU countries. …

Ekstra Bladet reporters have found examples of people using false addresses and companies that are in liquidation, which haven’t been removed from the register.

One of the cases, which stems from the Danish register, involves fraud of more than 8 billion kroner.

Eight billion kroner comes to $1,625,288,000 — peanuts compared to the money con men and unscrupulous corporations like GE will no doubt rake in if Chairman Zero signs something stupid at the climate summit.

Carbon credit tycoon Al Gore could not be reached for comment.
