Woodside out on a limb with trees

T'S deliciously ironic that oil and gas producer Woodside Petroleum, one of the most strident opponents of the federal government's proposed emissions trading scheme, should be party to the biggest carbon offset deal in the country.

Woodside last week confirmed that it would take up an option to extend an offset scheme first struck with carbon specialist CO2 Australia in late 2007. The $100 million deal will create a carbon sink of mallee forests across 23,000ha in marginal farming lands in NSW and Western Australia -- the largest carbon sink project of its type in the world.
