Killing camels for carbon credits

Northwest Carbon, a South Ausstralian carbon project developer, has a methodology involving a mass cull of outback camels. Camels emit large amounts of methane, each adult producing about a tonne of methane a year. They have no natural predators. Numbering more than one million in the center, the population is growing quickly. The methodology could generate up to 18 million carbon credits, with more than 650,000 created per year during the initial three to five years.
