Atoning for our (my) Climate Sins: is it possible with Carbon Offsets?
OK, OK, I know that air travel is not good for the planet (listen to ClimateX’s Bonus Episode 3: To Fly or Not To Fly)… and – true confessions – I have a long-distance trip coming up that I’m not going to cancel – so, what to do? Several years ago I bought carbon offsets for my air travel, but I slacked off – each time, thinking, oh, right, I’ll do it when I get home…
This time, in addition to doing my own research, I’m asking you, ClimateX member or visitor, to share your stories about carbon offsets for air travel:
- If you don’t use them, why not.
- If you do use them,
- How do you tell if they’re legit?
- Which offset arrangements you’ve found most effective and why?
- Which are your top 2-3 go-to info sources on offsets?
Some places I’ve found to start my own research
Hope to hear from you soon!
