Partial translation:-

Ninety percent of the transactions thus far have been fraudulent. The Carbon Con is an even better scam than credit card fraud.

The wind blows quite a bit up here so I think Ill 'harness it" put it in a jar and sell it.

I am willing to be reasonable lets say $50 per 500gm jar. Im sure that there will be many willing to by my hot/cold air 'to save the planet'

Carbon credits are certificates for something which doesn't exist, hence there is no difference between a fake and a real one. They are tailor-made for scammers, and this is surely not by accident.
