ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the personal influences of people on global warming. The author inferred that people can opt to make a positive impact by buying carbon offsets to subtract the polluting emissions added to the atmosphere. Carbon offsets are credits that individuals can purchase to support energy-efficient projects such as wind farms. The author also recommended the use of light emitting diodes as well as compact fluorescent lights and urged people to go carbon-neutral.
