Al Gore video

This appears to be a mini sequel to "An Inconvenient Truth". More 'I wuz robbed' gags and practical steps, less of the schmaltz.

Not so sure about the appropriateness of the Beamer ad at the start and the end...

Haven't seen the movie yet but will definitely make sure I do.

I recently met the amazing founder of the Plant-A-Tree-Today-Foundation (PATT), a non-profit organisation who sell carbon credits to offset carbon emissions. The carbon credits are used to purchase trees which are planted through community based forestry projects in developing countries. You can buy lifetime credits, one-off credits against a particular activity or event, such as a plane trip or driving a car, and companies can support or implement their own tree planting projects. Have a look at their website http://www.plant-a-tree-today.org

Other carbon offset schemes are available! ;-).

I may cover offsetting at some point, but as I'm a Director of another scheme I'll have to be careful to be non-partisan.

Should spell check first :)

Hi Gareth/Saraswati,

Good to see that we are getting some press. Gareth there are many offsetting scheme around however hope that they can match us in terms of the partnership arrangements we have in Asia to use the funding to set up community banks that allow micro-finance to the villagers, tackle gender equality, prevent urban migration, create sustainability and eradicate poverty along with tackling our major concerns such as climate change and reforestation. This is all funded by us based on the number of trees that the villagers plant in their region and is monitored and audited by a 3rd party agency.
