Green Tip of the Day - Carbon Offsetting
Since Dennis will be flying out in one short week, I thought this would be a good time for this one. The aviation industry accounts for nearly 15% of greenhouse gas emissions. There are several sites like www.carbonfund.org that allow you to make contributions to clean energy industries to offset the CO2 emissions from your flight. It is a fairly inexpensive way to reduce your carbon footprint. For instance, to offset Dennis' flight from Virginia to Iraq would cost us a mere $23.94.
