Esurance offsetting carbon emissions of people who went to Live Earth

We missed this story last week but it's actually not to late to take advantage of this offer. Online insurance company Esurance is providing carbon offsets to anyone who went to the Live Earth Concert in New Jersey last week.
If you went to the concert you can go to a site that the company has setup at and enter your mileage. Esurance will buy carbon offsets from NativeEnergy, a company that works with Native American farmers to build renewable energy projects. They then sell the carbon credits based on those installations. Now the question is will anyone offset all the carbon generated to power all the amps and equipment used to setup and put on these concerts all over the world?
