Sasol eyes "significant income" from carbon credits

Sasol, the world's biggest maker of fuel from coal, will earn "significant income" by selling carbon credits by converting a greenhouse gas into nitrogen and oxygen, the company said on Monday.

Now let me see if I've got this right. Sasol, using technology resurrected to help the apartheid regime resist sanctions, makes a filthy synthetic vehicle fuel (CNN: Crunch Time for Hitler's Fuel) and now says "If you pay us we'll slow down our rate of pollution growth".

Alrighty then.
