High Fliers Have Offset Options

| Friday June 24th, 2005 | 0 Comments

Aircraft.jpgThe UK airline industry expects that the number of air flights will increase enough in the next 25 years that greenhouse gas emissions will double… and that’s accounting for aircraft that will emit half of what they do today. This is rather significant, given that high elevation emissions may contribute up to three times as much to global warming as ground level emissions.
Want to fly without greenhouse guilt? Many individuals (and their employers) support this idea, and savvy entrepreneurs are happy to help. For a fee, groups such as Future Forests and AtmosFair will plant trees to offset your carbon emissions. (Via the TimesOnline)
