How TerraPass works | TerraPass: Fight global warming, promote alternative energy
Each year, the average car emits about 10,000 lbs (three times its weight!) in carbon dioxide pollution – a leading cause of global warming. You buy a TerraPass. TerraPass funds clean energy projects that reduce industrial carbon dioxide emissions. Your TerraPass is third-party certified to reduce the equivalent of your car’s carbon dioxide pollution.
At first I thought this is something the government should do, instead of a corporation. But, TerraPass is figuring in a 10% profit margin and government is rarely that lean. So, maybe it is better to have a private company do this.
A one-year TerraPass for my Prius will be cheap ($30), but the tour bus is going to cost me… I’ll let you know once I have all of the numbers.
