as well as the current planetary mass-extinction of species,
we need to find ways to minimize and offset our personal contribution to greenhouse emissions.
RECs! (Renewable Energy Credits) and Air Travel Offsets.
Organizations work to create projects which offset greenhouse gas emissions from air travel.
They do it by planting trees, building renewable electricity generation, and the like.
And their offsets are relatively cheap: under $25 dollars can offset a cross-country flight, for two!

These organizations are well-vetted to do what they say they are doing: helping you to save the planet!
