How Sustainable Is Carbon Offsetting? Here’s The Big Picture

As we strive to be a sustainable society, the first thought that comes into most peoples’ minds is to protect the environment. One of the ways we can do this is to implement carbon offsets. At least as part of our mitigation strategy. So we had to ask: How sustainable is carbon offsetting?

Do Carbon Offsets Reduce Climate Change? The Big Picture

Reducing carbon emissions to mitigate climate change is crucial if we want to ensure a sustainable planet for future generations. Carbon offsets are one way to achieve this; however, some assert they do not really work due to various issues involving effectiveness, credibility, and success rates. So, we had to ask: do carbon offsets reduce climate change?

Can You Really Offset Your Carbon Footprint? Here Are the Facts

To ensure a sustainable planet for future generations we must take action now to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and our carbon footprint. Carbon offsets are one of the ways in which we can do this, but it may be only a mitigation strategy rather than a cure-all. So, we had to ask: can you really offset your carbon footprint?

Which Fuel Sources Have the Lowest Carbon Footprint? A Life-Cycle Assessment

Oil (including gasoline and diesel fuel) is the world’s primary fuel source for transportation. But since the turn of the century, there has been a push toward cleaner-burning transportation fuels with fewer negative effects on the environment. Different fuel sources have different carbon footprints, with some of these values being higher than others. So, we had to ask: Which fuel sources have the lowest carbon footprint?

What Is the Carbon Footprint of Algae Fuel? A Life-Cycle Assessment 

You probably know that trees are important in the fight against climate change. But did you know that algae are also important, and on a much larger scale? Algae can even be used to produce sustainable transportation fuels that emit less greenhouse gas emissions upon combustion. So, we had to ask: What is the carbon footprint of algae fuel?

What Is the Carbon Footprint of Biofuel? A Life-Cycle Assessment

Fossil fuels, specifically gasoline and diesel fuel, still remain the two most widely used transportation fuels. But as of late, biofuel has emerged as an alternative fuel source with lower levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and climate change mitigation properties. So, we had to ask: What is the carbon footprint of biofuel?

What Is the Carbon Footprint of Biodiesel? A Life-Cycle Assessment

Every year the transportation industry emits a significant amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the air. Although gasoline and diesel fuel are still the two most widely used fuel sources, biodiesel has emerged as an alternative fuel source that promises lower levels of pollutants and climate change-fighting properties. So, we had to ask: What is the carbon footprint of biodiesel?
