Considering how much I fly, this is both interesting and scary. Does anyone know anything about these programs? Legit? Can anything designed to ease your conscience possibly be this easy? Does it matter? Should I pay the $100 US or so that they estimate carbon offsets for my trips this year will cost? Is this sort of thing a good idea over the long-haul?
I don’t drive much, or consume much; I live in a house that’s bigger than I strictly need but it’s not outrageous. By far my most egregious contribution to global warming is my flying habit, and I really don’t want to give it up.
