Annual Carbon Offset Purchase

I purchased a Carbon Offset yesterday. It is $240 this year and it will offset the carbon I am causing. I am unable to lower my carbon footprint because I live in an apartment complex and need a larger car for safety.

Reviewing A New Booklet Becoming Carbon Neutral for Publication

A good friend and recently retired University of Cincinnati professor of Architecture has just written a practical booklet, "Becoming Carbon Neutral". It is based on a course he lead last year at Mount Auburn Presbyterian Church with 30 participants. He asked me to read it to assure readability. It will take at least two hours.

  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Purchase a Carbon Offset
    A round-trip flight from New York City to Los Angeles emits just over 1.5 tons of CO2—per person. That’s a lot of carbon! What can you do to reduce the number of flights you take per year?

    I hope to fly to Tucson in the Fall and will deal with details then.

    I created a challenge that was also a task that I had volunteered to do and received double points here and from my friend the author.

    I am really busy downsizing and finding ways to recycle things like family linens.

    Being challenged and helped with the password sign in has helped me focus and realize what I have done and where I can grow in Earth Care.

    I have been cocerned with Earth Care for over 50 years and was a charter subscriber to GARBAGE MAGAZINE. The church I attend has 200 solar panels on the roof and is retrofitting the 150 year old structure to become carbon neutral.  I am glad to be part of ongoing efforts to change personal and instutional practices to reduce carbon and improve people's lives.
