Denver Considers Carbon Offset Kiosks At DIA

Greenprint Denver, a panel of environmental experts put together by the Mayor, is targeting Denver International Airport as a means of reaching the city’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 10 percent per capita by 2012, USA Today reports.

The panel envisions establishing kiosks at the airport where travelers can pay for carbon offsets. Alternatively, the airport might work with airlines to allow air travelers to pay voluntary “offset” fees when they purchase tickets.

The panel estimates that a fee of $2.50 to offset 1,000 miles of air travel would help the city reach its reduction goals.

  1. Ridiculous. Trading on people’s sense of guilt to do something that’s not likely to accomplish anything worthwhile.

    You should be required to post at every kiosk a fiscal impact report showing how much temperatures will decline for every million dollars you spend. Then, YOU would feel guilty for spend so much money on a something so trivial when people go hungry and homeless on your own streets.

    Where are your priorities???

  2. An excellent idea assuming that the air travel calculations are accurate and the carbon offsets meet high quality standards. Uncook the Planet quality carbon offset would like to offer Greenprint Denver the opportuntiy to access the Uncook carbon offset service for their kiosks. See website http://www.uncook.com
