Our Target & Strategy for 2014

At Carbon Earth™ we have a great belief in what we do and in what we are aiming to achieve in tackling climate change. The challenge facing us is to make more people aware of their personal and corporate impact on the world and then to give them the tools to reduce that impact.

We do this by providing a simple Carbon Footprint Calculator or a Semi Online Option to allow you to know and understand where your Carbon Footprint excesses lie.

We will help where possible to advise and assist you to Save Energy and reduce your emissions by simple or not so simple means.

Then we give you the opportunity to offset any Carbon excesses that you may have through our
 Carbon Offsetting Scheme.

There are simple ways of reducing your energy usage and in turn your emissions that can be followed with a renewable energy option such as  Solar Panels, Wind Generators and Geo Thermal Pumps.

The total message is :-
1. Establish your Carbon Footprint
2. Reduce your Carbon Emission Footprint to save energy and money.
3. Offset your Carbon Dioxide (CO2) excesses and help the World.
4. In other words, try to become as 'Carbon Neutral' as possible.

The facts in brief.

Our climate systems vary through natural, internal processes and in response to variations in external forcing factors including solar activity, volcanic emissions, variations in the earth's orbit and greenhouse gases. An active field of research on the detailed causes of the recent warming remain ongoing, but a scientific consensus agrees that the increased levels of greenhouse gases are due to human activity. This has become more clear over the last fifty years, for which the most detailed data is available. Contrasting with this consensus, other hypotheses have been put forward to explain most of the observed increase in global temperatures. One such hypothesis is that the warming is caused by natural fluctuations in the climate or that warming is mainly a result of variations in solar radiation.

There is no doubt however that the greenhouse gases emitted as a result of human activity is a serious threat to the future of the earth. In addition the natural resources of the earth, oil, gas, coal are being used up at an unsustainable rate. So, we must act now.

What is your Carbon Footprint? CLICK HERE

carbon-footprint Carbon footprint is a measure of the amount of carbon dioxide or CO2 emitted through the combustion of fossil fuels for households, business and enterprise, as part of their everyday operations.
In the case of an individual or household, as part of their daily lives, or for a business, getting their product or commodity to the market.

A carbon footprint is expressed as tonnes (1000kg) of carbon dioxide  emitted on a yearly basis. There are various versions of calculators available for carbon footprint assessment but can be over complicated. We have produced an easy to use Carbon Footprint Calculator aimed at the house holder and business. Plus comments on how saving can be made.

Carbon Offsetting

Once you have established your Carbon Footprint you should have some idea of the impact that you, your family or your company are having on the environment in units of tonnes of Carbon Dioxide emitted. You can offset some or all of those excesses through our Carbon Offsetting Scheme.

Carbon Earth™ are able to provide you with verified Carbon Credits via our projects. We operate mainly in the UK and are planting large numbers of traditional protected broadleaf trees in order absorb Carbon Dioxide through sequestration throughout their lives.

creating renewable energy.

renewable energyRenewable Energy is energy derived from resources that are regenerative or for all practical purposes cannot be depleted. For this reason, renewable energy sources are fundamentally different from fossil fuels, and do not produce as many greenhouse gases and other pollutants as fossil fuel combustion. Mankind's traditional uses of wind, water, and solar energy are widespread in developed and developing countries; but the mass production of electricity using renewable energy sources has become more commonplace recently, reflecting the major threats of climate change, exhaustion of fossil fuels, and the environmental, social and political risks of fossil fuels and nuclear power. Consequently, many countries promote renewable energies through tax incentives and subsidies.

Carbon Trading

Emissions trading (or cap and trade) is an administrative approach used to control pollution by providing economic incentives for achieving reductions in the emissions of pollutants. The development of a carbon project that provides a reduction in Greenhouse Gas emissions is a way by which participating entities may generate tradeable carbon credits. Kyoto Protocol provides for this facet of its cap and trade program with the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of verification. To trade in CERs (Certified Emission Reductions) or VERs (Verified and maybe Voluntary Emission Reductions go to Carbon Uk our business trading arm.

Thought for the day!

Written by American - Field Palmer

Relaxed in a large armchair at a recent conference in Anaheim, Ca., oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens with his heavy Texan drawl likened the U.S.’s energy crisis to a Greek legend and made an argument for wind power.

In “The Sword of Damocles,” the ruling tyrant, Dionysus, lived a posh life with servants hired for flattery. Damocles, one of Dionysus’ entourage, laid on the praise with a heavy hand. He prattled on and on about how wonderful it must be to have so much power and wealth. Dionysus said, “Have a go at it hoss, just for a day.” Damocles lounged in Dionysus’ chair, popping grapes and enjoying a gentle breeze from the palm-frond flapping concubines.
All seemed well, but when he looked up he saw a razor sharp sword glistening above his head, held by a single horse hair. Quite disturbed, he turned to Dionysus, who explained that the feeling of power would not be complete without the ever-present risk of falling from it.

The moral from Pickens’s perspective is, the more you have, the more there is to lose, and the more people want to take it from you. And right now the same proverbial sword is dangling right over America, and the single thread that is keeping it from taking off one of our ears is our ever-thinning supply of energy.
As a nation we consume 25% of the world’s oil and produce a quarter of the planet’s greenhouse gases, yet we constitute just five percent of the population. Sounds like a gluttonous ruler, eh? Well, that’s exactly the way Mr. Pickens sees it. Even though he’s made over $2.5 billion in oil during his life, he knows we must switch to alternatives if we ever want to sheath that sword. What he proposes we do is distribute our energy needs among different alternative resources and get hostile oil and gas supplying countries off our back. As a matter of fact, Pickens is so gung-ho about alternative energy he’s putting $6 billion in a wind farm in his home state.
