We've made it our job to know the most there is to know about solutions to climate change and to provide any effective solutions directly to you. Even more than that - we want you to know why we think it's an effective solution and that includes documenting our reasoning behind rejecting ineffective solutions. It's important to note that when we say effective, we're talking about the combination of likelihood (most offset certifications work hard to increase likelihood) , speed, ease, cost, and scale in roughly that order. There are lots of things that are better than nothing or have the potential to make an impact.
If you'd like us to evaluate a solution: Submit a request
Likelihood - how likely is it to work?
Speed - how many tons does it remove each year, starting in the first year, for each unit?
Contribution - how much does this solution impact the US's footprint overall (%)?
Extensibility - how many people could this action be available to (% of US population)?
Cost - how much does it cost per ton of emissions avoided and what is the minimum cost to participate?
Scale - how much of the world's emissions could be mitigated by this solution?
Trajectory - Does this solution have the potential to create new technology that will help other countries avoid the same path as the US (increasing emissions with increasing quality of life)?
