Time to Take Action

(First posted on the Carbon Clear website 2nd February 2007)

The debate is over - again. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says that humanity's impact on the climate is "unequivocal". The world is warming faster than scientists expected - and the decisions we take in our daily lives are the cause.

The IPPC report comes just a week after some of America's largest corporations sent an open letter to President Bush, urging the US Government to demonstrate leadership on climate change.

And these moves follow November release of the Stern Review, which found that the costs of dealing with global warming are much lower than the cost of doing nothing.

A major global push to tackle climate change is inevitable. The good news is that we know what needs to be done. Businesses and households can take straightforward measures to reduce their carbon footprint by 20% or more. We'll show you how.The way our economy is structured means it's hard to become "carbon neutral" on your own. We will help with that, too, with a Carbon Clear offset package.When you offset with us, we'll invest in fantastic low-carbon projects that balance out the unavoidable pollution from your business or household, and help improve lives in some of the countries on the front lines of climate change.
