Two carbon offset companies that my law firm and I fund on a monthly basis:

Terrapass: A variety of projects including landfill gas capture and methane capture that meaningfully reduce greenhouse gases.

Charm: Carbon is converted to oil and stored underground such that it can't return to the atmosphere for at least 1 million years.

I think both of those projects are worthwhile and encourage everyone to donate.


"""Even if you have 100 percent capture from the capture equipment, it is still worse, from a social cost perspective, than replacing a coal or gas plant with a wind farm because carbon capture never reduces air pollution and always has a capture equipment cost. Wind replacing fossil fuels always reduces air pollution and never has a capture equipment cost.""

@hhardy01 I'm all for retiring fossil fuel plants. But that is a partial solution. We need to take carbon out of the atmosphere too.
