So, how do you run out of carbon offsets? For that matter, what kind of carbon offset will 50p buy me anyway? I mean, it can’t really cost a mere ( 50p x $number_of_rockers ) to “offset” ALL the evil anti-green-enviro-stuff entailed in putting on the festival, if it costs ( £10 x $number_of_rockers ) just for Ticketmaster to sell the damn tickets over t’intertubes.
Now, Download is put on by LiveNation, and I had a suspicion that Ticketmaster were owned by LiveNation. A quick google has told me that they weren’t bought but “merged”. So yeah, my “outrage at the evil faceless corporation queezing the blood from the innocent” nerve is running on overdrive at the moment.
