12.0 Consider Carbon Offsets

Carbon offsets have been called a sin tax, compared to Catholic indulgences or paying for a war substitute. But carbon offsets are meant to be used only as a supplement, not a substitute. Choose carefully, and carbon offsets will genuinely reduce emissions.

As a gesture toward neutralizing your remaining footprint consider buying offsets.  Well regarded U.S.-based companies and organizations that provide carbon offsets:

  1. CarbonFund.
  2. Climate Trust.
  3. Native Energy.
  4. TerraPass.
