About climate change and carbon emissions

Climate change is real, we are all responsible for it and we all must be part of the solution!

Since the Industrial Revolution started in the middle of the 19th century, carbon dioxide emissions in our atmosphere have increased steadily and dramatically from the burning of fossil fuels, namely coal, oil and gas, and to a lesser degree from methane and industrial gases.

This increase in CO2 from roughly 280 parts per million (ppm) prior to the Industrial Revolution to about 392 ppm today is having a dramatic impact on our climate, both warming our climate and altering our weather with more droughts and more very extreme weather events. Our sea levels are rising and entire countries are at risk of disappearing. If the Greenland glaciers fail, global sea levels could rise by 20 feet, swamping low level areas around the world, including Florida and Manhattan, causing global catastrophe.

The cause of climate change is manmade.

And we must solve the problem by reducing our emissions by 50-85% globally by mid century. Breaking down the problem, this does not need to be an insurmountable task. Reducing our emissions just 2% per year would do it. Carbonfund.org helps individuals and businesses understand climate change and develop practical and cost-effective solutions to slow, stop and reduce our climate crisis.

Our carbon reduction projects

Carbonfund.org supports three types of carbon offset projects; each type plays an important role in the fight against climate change. The projects we support are third-party certified to meet the same high standards that thousands of companies, organizations, and governments rely on to ensure quality environmental protection.
