If everyone does what he can it will make a "world" of difference.

The whole grass roots movement from backyard gardening to low level envirnmental impact buying and recycling are all ways the consumer can make a difference in the neighborhood, city, country, and world. It's not impossible to accomplish improvements from the top down but it is much more expensive.

Carbon offsetting is a self-imposed tax. It's ridiculous. You can do a better job of significantly reducing your "carbon footprint" by managing what you do and how you do it. And even for those things you can't mitigate yourself, you can do a better job for less cost by planting trees or other plants in places that need them. Of course, if all you want is a momentary guilt-reducing "feel-good" shiver, go ahead and pay someone else to do the work. Realize that when you do, much of what you pay for goes to their overhead and expenses. Aren't the offset programs these students are doing the better choice anyway? Shouldn't those things be what they choose to do as a matter of principle?
