Email of Indulgence - Modern Global Citizens

Naturally (!), I follow the ongoing debate of how to maintain or even improve living on planet earth and I've posted on it before (a/k/a the 'whereabouts of mankind' series).

I stumbled over two modern concepts:
  1. You can calculate your CO2 emissions (by plance, car, etc.) and buy a so-called terrapass that balances your impact by investing the money in projects that reduce CO2 emissions somewhere else. A comparable institution out of Potsdam, Germany, is called TheCompensators*.
  2. The website with the magnificent title is set-up as a portal for ideas and tools that may change our thinking for the better. It "works from a simple premise: that the tools, models and ideas for building a better future lie all around us."
