AN FRANCISCO - San Francisco International Airport is planning to give guilt-ridden travelers a chance to offset the air pollution emitted from their plane rides.
The airport says it will set up a series of kiosks so travelers can purchase certified carbon offsets. A pilot program is to be launched this spring.
Travelers will enter their destination into the kiosk, which will calculate the amount of carbon dioxide for which they are responsible and the cost of offsetting it. After swiping their credit cards, they would get a receipt listing the exact carbon-reducing projects their money went to.
I sure would like to sell something like this do these people really think that buying this it will help? I am going to start selling an offset here on cdfreaks for water pollution, so everyone get there credit card ready. I will after you pay me start peeing in a can and let it set in the sun until it is gone that way it will not go into the water supply.
