Going Carbon Neutral
To solve the problem of climate change, we all need to take account of our personal carbon emissions and make continued efforts to reduce them wherever possible. But it is impossible to reduce our carbon emissions to zero, no matter how hard we try. Going carbon neutral by purchasing carbon offsets is a practical and affordable way to do something about those remaining emissions. In effect, you are paying someone to offset your carbon emissions by giving them money towards creating renewable energy or reducing their own carbon emissions. It’s supposed to be a zero sum game.
