My TerraPass should be arriving any day now, and I'm definitely looking forward to putting it on my rear window (and I'm not a bumper sticker- or window decal-kind of person).

If you're not familiar with TerraPass, the idea is simple:
  1. Each year, the average car emits about 10,000 lbs (three times its weight!) in carbon dioxide pollution -- a leading cause of global warming.
  2. You buy a TerraPass.
  3. TerraPass funds clean energy projects that reduce industrial carbon dioxide emissions.
  4. Your TerraPass is third-party certified to reduce the equivalent of your car's carbon dioxide pollution.
The TerraPass runs from $29.95 (for hybrids) to $79.95 (for large SUVs and sports cars). Mine was $49.95 -- a small price to pay, it seems to me, to know that my car's CO2 emissions have been offset.
