San Francisco is building carbon offset kiosks for enviro-nitwit plane travelers who want to assuage their guilt over their carbon footprints. Frequent flier and planet savior Nancy Pelosi approves, no doubt:
San Francisco’s Airport Commission has authorized the program, which will involve a $163,000 investment from SFO, but is still working out the details with 3Degrees. Because of that, McDougal said, he can’t yet discuss specifics, such as the cost to purchase carbon offsets and what programs would benefit from travelers’ purchases.
But the general idea, officials said, is that a traveler would approach a kiosk resembling the self-service check-in stations used by airlines, then punch in his or her destination. The computer would calculate the carbon footprint and the cost of an investment to offset the damage. The traveler could then swipe a credit card to help save the planet. Travelers would receive a printed receipt listing the projects benefiting from their environmental largesse.
Wonder if they’ll let the folks who came up with carbon offset offsets build their own kiosks? I’ll buy those!
