Offsetting your carbon or climate footprint can help reduce global warming.
We were very curious about just what these carbon offsets are, so we checked ‘em out. Turns out they are basically contributions to energy efficiency, renewable energy, and other projects intended to make a difference in preserving natural resources and protecting the environment.
Offsetting carbon dioxide emissions does not have to be an expensive proposition, either. If you fly about 6,000 miles, you can take responsibility for your CO2 emissions for $6.25; offsetting 20,000 miles in the air will set you back $20.90; 40,000 flight miles, $41.80; and 100,000 miles, only $104.50!
