Although It might seem there's nothing you can do about global warming locally. You think the problem is just too big.
As you know, we all contribute to the process of global warming. All of us have a "carbon footprint" the carbon dioxide emissions that we help create when we drive, fly or use electricity.
The first step you can take to fight global warming is to reduce your carbon footprint through conservation. Drive less. Turn down the thermostat. and Buy locally produced goods.
Why buy Carbon Credits?
Buying Carbon Credits is a good way to HELP reduce, the effects of climate change & global warming, which can be seen right now, today. Temperatures globally are on the increase, man made or natural and our ocean's temperatures have resin 3+ degrees in the past 100 years or so, causing our ice glaciers to start melting at unprecedented speeds, complete area's and total regions of the Antarctic shelves are breaking away daily due to the effect of excessive carbon emissions, our warmer summer seasons are becoming longer and longer, winter seasons are becoming warmer and shorter, and the storms globally are becoming more, & more severe causing very extreme damages, adding up to billions and billions of dollars.
Reducing your carbon footprint, through the reduction of your energy use and the purchasing of carbon credits will help offset your carbon footprint, & allow you to be a big player in the solutions to global warming, you'll be helping to support the reduction of your CO2 footprint equal to your personal/business and or community carbon footprint. Carbon Offset purchases play a big part in helping to reduce your CO2 footprint and a very practical & cost effective measure for an individual, business or community to take. (But to become CO2 free, the most important actions to take are to reduce your energy use, as much as one can). To see practical steps you can use to help you reduce your CO2 footprint before you buy carbon credits, see our (Saving Energy) page.
CO2 emissions is a global problem, with a local solution, helping reduce 1 ton of CO2 in North Carolina (or what ever state you leave or do business in) by reducing your energy use & buying carbon credits and offsetting your carbon footprint, will have the same climate changing benefits as doing so in South America, Europe, or any other place on the globe. No one technology is better than another: wind isn't better than water, solar isn't better than renewable. Each ton of CO2 reduced anywhere is exactly the same as any other ton reduced anywhere else, so join us today, & help us save tomorrow for our children and their children.
