We're heading off to the sunny south for some SUNSHINE and WARM temperatures. All this white shit on the ground here in Canada is starting to depress me. It was great for awhile - tobagganing, downhill skiing, ice skating......it's all fun and games for the first few months - then after that - I'd like to ask that white crap to "Get the f*&^ outta here already"! ha ha
Because we're flying I offsetted our carbon emissions at http://www.terrapass.com/.
"A carbon offset is a certificate representing the reduction of one metric ton (2,205 lbs) of carbon dioxide emissions, the principal cause of global warming. Although complex in practice, carbon offsets are fairly simple in theory. If you develop a project that reduces carbon dioxide emissions, every ton of emissions reduced results in the creation of one carbon offset. Project developers can then sell these offsets to finance their projects. There are hundreds of different types of carbon reduction projects. For example, a wind farm generates clean energy, which reduces carbon emissions from coal-burning power plants. In order to finance its operations, a wind farm can sell these reductions in the form of carbon offsets."
Next time you travel, visit this website and consider buying one of the certificates - we did! Talk to you when we get back!
