Helping raise awareness and instigate mobilization on climate change are carbon neutral companies that sell offsets to greenhouse gas emissions. You may recognize the phrase from the Oscars or even Fox News on Monday.
On YouTube, you can find a clip of ClimateProgress’ Joseph Romm discussing carbon neutrality with Shepard Smith on Studio B, where it is encouraging to see the network not debating the science but exploring some solutions.
You can also hear Joseph Romm on air with Bob Edwards reviewing other global warming solutions like energy efficiency, renewable portfolio standards, and repealing subsidies for oil companies. The entire clip must be purchased, but you can get a taste of the conversation from the sample.
Lastly, MIT’s Technology Review references Romm’s books Hell and High Water and The Hype about Hydrogen to respond to BMW’s new Hydrogen 7 model. In contrast to the above solutions, we should not be impressed with BMW’s unveiling or the direction that hydrogen fuel takes our environment and energy use.
