Well, they do reduce greenhouse gases, but you pay someone else to do it for you. So you can pay a farmer to plant trees and continue to let your factory burn oil. Let's hope the farmer keeps putting the prices up, and the factory owner moves to renewable energy (solar, wind, hydro, tidal and wave, geothermal and biofuel).
