Sign the Petition to Issue “War Bonds” to finance the War on Climate Change!

Please consider the Carbon Xprint process as a viable carbon mitigation strategy. The strategies of cap-and-trade, carbon tax, and REC’s attack the problem by making fossil fuels less attractive. They do not build the infrastructure that we need. Trillions of dollars are needed to finance this new infrastructure. Clean energy makes financial sense. The Carbon Xpint process allows quantitative offsetting of one’s carbon footprint by making incremental investments in certified clean energy projects. The investment unit cost matches the cost of a ton of carbon. To offset one ton of a footprint, one unit of the investment is purchased. These “ war bonds ” for the climate effort could be offered with or without government intervention. Their flexibility provides an opportunity for individuals and companies to be engaged. This method allows anyone to measure their climate responsibility and profitably contribute to building a clean and safe energy system.

Australian government bans dumping in the Great Barrier Reef (WWF)

In a landmark victory for the Great Barrier Reef, the Australian government passed a much-anticipated bill to ban dredge dumping in the World Heritage waters. This law closes for good a legal loophole that could have allowed 46 million cubic meters of seabed to be dug up and dumped in this fragile ecosystem.
