Feeling Guilty About Your SUV's Carbon Emission? Buy a TerraPass!

Feeling guilty about your SUV's carbon emission? You can buy this card which promises to invest in energy projects that reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Karl is an environmentalist. His thing is bike commuting ... But like a lot of environmentalists, he has a guilty habit – his truck.

That fall, Karl walked into a classroom at Wharton, gave his students a check for $5,000, and challenged them to create an affordable carbon offset for everyday drivers. TerraPass is the result.

People shouldn't scream about them not cutting their emissions entirely. It's still far, far better than them doing nothing to cut emissions, which is what they would be doing otherwise.

I recall an article about how "if we treated global warming as a technical problem instead of a moral outrage, we could cool the world." (Silly Libertarians...)
