There was a group of investment brokers and such who were charged by the SEC for illegal trades last week. The group apparently faked a company called CO2 Tech (Yeah never believe a company is real if the name sounds like a 10year old made it up). Then, they sold shares to investment funds and took the money. They had no real assets.

Moral of the story: 1) be careful where you invest your money; 2) if you are an environmental company, know the FEDS are watching.

As a Christian who cares about God’s creation (the environment), I hope that those who mislead people about taking care of the environment will be prosecuted. It’s certainly a fiscal crime, and I think it’s a moral crime to lie about doing good when you aren’t. This example should make us all strive to be a little more shrewd and innocent (Mt 10:16).
