As far as this global warming stuff goes with sea levels rising, all the Earth needs is another Mt. Pinatubo type eruption or two...and that will cool things down.

Find a way to save the equivalent of that fuel and actually do it. Add some solar to your house, ride a bike rather than using the car, cut your electricity usage, but do something real. Paying somebody else to do your dirty work just does not cut it. Take responsibility for your own actions, and quit hiding behind the almighty dollar.
Just my $.02!!

Yes, I guess I will side with others that are negative.
Also, as you will read in my thread, doing this isn't INSTEAD of doing other things, but IN ADDITION to doing other things.
I suppose you also flame people who say, hey, I want to do something good for the environment, so I'm going to buy wind energy, instead of coal fired energy. You would probably say, no, just don't use any energy! Walk to work, work in the dark, and walk home. Eat raw spinach in the dark, go to sleep.
Negative: misspelling DEFINITION.
Carbon credits are pure BULLSHIT. Just out of curiousity, do you have any interest in a carbon credit company?
Perhaps I'll plant some trees instead.
