#5  how does Africa manage to fund them?

China has already put in about a $100b in Africa. There are other multinational entities too which are invested in the fuel/energy sector. The ADB and their friends can shove their concerns up their thunbergs.

Developing countries will press on, mostly along the same route the first world took to get there. If they are believing 'experts' who believe everything from the moment man discovered fire is a sin now, fuck 'em. Poor and destitute populations cannot and will not switch to batteries or expensive to produce and maintain infrastructure for alt power.

#9 If all the carbon offset payments are being made should landowners living in the tropics be flooded with money by now.

Has anyone tracked the money being sold against offsets?
