Thanks Carol

Interesting that Suzuki lists only 3 "gold standard" offset providers which guarantee a fairly rapid offset, such as additional solar power generation, in the way that tree planting cannot. One is an Australian company . one is German and the link to the third did not work.

I will certainly be using them to offset "current" greenhouse generation, such as car travel.

But we often forget about the "capital" greenhouse cost of what we do, for instance making the car (the "embedded energy").

Tree planting seems to me to be a very reasonable way of offsetting that aspect of cars. So I'll be paying for some of that too.
