New investment in Biomass project

Another investment has been made by our community, this time offsetting 75 tonnes of CO2. Thank you everybody!

The investment was made in a biomass project. This is not the cheapest type of investment among CDM-projects, but it at least has a medium likelihood of being additional (according to this report: https://ec.europa.eu/clima/sites/clima/files/ets/docs/clean_dev_mechanism_en.pdf ). Many other types of CDM-projects are unfortunately less likely to be additional.

Since last time we have learnt a bit about climate project investment and are now actively looking for other alternatives to CDM-project, such as Gold Standard or Fair Trade. We will keep you informed as our search for the most climate effective investments continue.

Investment in Solar Project in Gujarat

We have now invested in a Solar Project in Gujarat, and thereby contributed to removing 400 tones of CO2 from the atmosphere.  Thank you everyone!

You can read more about the CDM project at the UN site here, and read even more project details here.

Upwards and onwards!

Carbon Offset Investment in Wind Power Project in Tamilnadu, India

With our latest offset investment we have managed to offset 90 tons of CO2! Yay! Thank you everyone!

This time the investment is in a Wind Power Project in Tamilnadu, India. The total capacity of this project is 4.35 MW generated from four wind mills. By using this kind of renewable energy instead of fossil fuel generated energy climate change hopefully will slow down somewhat.

Trump Withdraws U.S. from Paris Climate Agreement

Trump withdraws U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement and thereby the U.S. role as a leading country towards a sustainable future. America First seems to mean America Alone, and make America Great Again seems not to include solving global problems and making Our Planet Great Again.

So what does this mean for all of us who wants to combat climate change? When the U.S. as the worst CO2 polluting country in history does not take responsibility, the challenge of slowing down climate gets bigger.

But we still have our hopes up; it just means that the rest of us needs to do quite a bit more – if we are to try to slow down climate change at all. So what can we do? It’s awkwardly easy (on a personal level at least): fly less, eat less meat, invest green, commute green and go climate neutral now.

Carbon offset investment in Trang Palm Oil Wastewater Treatment Project

We have now made our third community climate offset, this time in Trang Palm Oil Wastewater Treatment Project in Trang Province, Thailand.

This time we have offset 50 tons of CO2, great job everyone!

Connection between Carbon Dioxide and Climate Change from 1912

I found an old newspaper clip from 1912 talking about the possibly dangerous link between carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and climate change. But we continued and accelerated the digging up of extreme amounts of coal from the ground and let it out into the atmosphere. The next generation won’t be very happy with us I’m afraid.

Second Climate Offset Investment – 42 tons CO2!

Now we have made our second community climate offset investment, this time in a project from Godawari Power and Ispat Limited replacing coal with waste heat flue gases.

Together we have offset 42 tons of CO2 this time! Thank you so much everyone!
