You and Your CO2 Emissions:
Donate to Happy Planet to Compensate!
Every time you produce carbon dioxide, it counts against the global carbon budget, meaning, it contributes to global warming. To combat climate change, you can pay a carbon fee according to the UK average carbon footprint, or you can pay according to flights you have taken, or you can by by or what you want and can afford. Here are some examples:
$20 is the US government’s department of energy figure for an effective carbon price.
- 10 tonnes/person/year is the UK average * $20 (£16) = $200 (£160)
- London → Bangalore 2.5 Tonnes return per person * $20 (£16) = $50 (£40)
