Carbon Micro Credits -- the Daily Bread of the Developing World

Some people have asked why is the URL for this blog CarbonManna ?

"Manna is the name of a food which, according to the Bible, was eaten by the Israelites during their travels in the desert until they reached Canaan" [Wikipedia]. Manna fell from the sky every evening or night and was deposited on the the rocks and vegetation. It was scrapped off every morning for 40 years while the Israelites wandered in the desert seeking the Promised Land.

Likewise, daily Carbon Micro Credits (CMCs) will be the manna that helps feed the Poor while wandering in the Desert of the Developing World. And even so, their ascension from living in Poverty on less than US$ 2 per day will most likely also take 40 years, sadly.

Some biblical scholars have speculated that manna was a carbo-hydrate that formed each evening due to special atmospheric conditions in the Sinai Desert during the time of Moses, just as rice, bread, potatoes or corn are carbon-based foods or carbohydrates. If so, it is ironic then that the non-emission of other carbon-based compounds -- the green house gases CO2 and CH4 (methane) -- may now once again be the daily gift that will feed the world's Poor.
