Compensate The Climate

April 14, 2009

Your holiday will cause damage to the environment, especially if you fly.  A new tool by Climate Care helps you calculate the cost of compensating the climate by suggesting a price you should pay to projects that will reverse the impact you will cause in terms of carbon emissions. Such a scheme is called “carbon offsetting” and is practiced by many responsible businesses.  Now you can be a responsible individual and practice responsible tourism.


The offset for the the carbon emissions produced during a return flight from the UK to Rio de Janeiro would cost £23.13.  This is a small increase of the cost of your flight and well worth paying to know that you will reduce the negative impact on the beauty that you will find in Brazil.
