Introduction by Dr. Don Rose, Writer, Life Alert
Global warming has been gaining an increasing amount of attention during the past few years, and the February 2007 Oscar win by Al Gore’s documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” is likely to accelerate the awareness of this problem. This article discusses the concept of “carbon offsetting” -- ways to offset the amount of carbon dioxide (i.e., pollution) that one generates during day to day activities. The more people strive to remain carbon neutral via carbon offsetting, the greater the odds that we may eventually slow down or even reverse the warming of our planet. --Don Rose
Well, basically carbon offsetting helps you to offset the carbon dioxide that you use when flying or driving etc by planting trees or installing solar panels and thereby removing your contribution to global climate change. You contribute to pollution by driving; you reduce the pollution by planting trees! You are carbon neutral!
What is Carbon Dioxide?
Carbon Dioxide is an inevitable product of the way we all live today. It is produced primarily through the burning of fossil fuels in:
Using Renewable Energy is one way of reducing the amount of fossil fuel that we burn via homes and businesses.
You Can Make a Difference, This is How
You, your business or employer may be already taking steps to tackle their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions at source using renewable energy and efficiency measures wherever possible. An initiative that offers extra action for businesses is to offset their remaining CO2 emissions through tree planting.
