Undated--We keep hearing about global warming and the dire consequences our future generations will face if we don't cut our carbon emissions right now.

Carbon, or Co-2, comes from fossil fuels that are burned when we drive our cars and heat our homes. It creates greenhouse gases that encircle the earth's atmosphere and hold in the heat causing climate changes. 

But a Maryland non-profit group now enables you to offset your carbon emissions so your life on earth doesn't do any harm. 


For 125 dollars a year, Malin Jennings is able to erase her share of carbon emissions by making a contribution to carbonfund.org.   The money supports wind farms, solar energy projects, and trees, reforestation as it's called...renewable energy that doesn't pollute. 


Carbonfund.org has been around for just three years, but their membership has exploded in the last nine months as the issue of global warming has awakened the public's consciousness due in large part to Al Gore's movie "An Inconvenient Truth." 


It's not just for individuals...the Calvert Fund in Bethesda figures it produces millions of pounds of Co2 each year, so it offsets that with a four thousand dollar contribution to carbonfund. 

Your contribution to carbonfund.org is tax deductible.
