While they admit that it is a "meaningless-but-entertaining milestone",
deserves credit for reaching the 100 million pounds of
marker this week. While people's cars are still driving them around, the TerraPass program has taken "the equivalent of taking almost 15,000
off the road for a year (or, ahem, 7,500
)". So, hat's off to them.
TerraPass says its goal is to offset 10 billion pounds of carbon, so they've got a ways to go (99 percent, actually). Still, their actions are making driving a theoretically cleaner thing to do, and I wish them well in their quest.
