Carbon Footprint Gimmicks

Editorial illustration for Maailman Kuvalehti. Finland plans to be carbon neutral by 2035. Great! But! The reported emissions from a certain country include only those that are produced inside its borders. However, about a half of the stuff we consume in Finland is manufactured abroad. So, we've outsourced half of our carbon footprint of our consumption. The same goes for other western countries as well, while countries like China are seen as the main culprits of carbon emissions.
