When I first started working in sustainability, I thought I would make a lot of money selling books.
I also had a lot to lose, and it was all going to be ruined if I didn’t stop my own consumption.
And so I did what any rational person would do: I started buying carbon offsets, and I made my life much easier for myself by reducing my consumption by about 80 percent.
I now sell about 40 books a year.
I don’t think I would have made the money I made selling those books if I hadn’t done carbon offsets.
It’s not about me, though.
It has nothing to do any sort of selfishness or self-interest.
It just happens to be about how we can best live off the planet.
But what happens when we stop doing carbon offsets and start doing things that actually do the most good for the planet?
That’s where the real questions come in.
It all depends on where we start and where we end up.
The good news is that there are a few things we can do to get carbon emissions down as much as we can, while also minimizing the damage we do.
This is a huge opportunity.
A lot of people are going to want to buy these books, but they don’t have to.
They could save up, and buy the books they want and then start to reduce their own carbon footprint.
Or they could start doing something that actually helps the planet: using solar panels instead of fossil fuels.
It might not be the smartest thing to do, but the best thing to try is to start doing it right now, and not just wait for the market to respond.
And the fact that this is happening at all is really a sign that the planet is on the cusp of a revolution in energy.
It means that we can be the change we want to see in the way we use energy.
As the planet moves away from fossil fuels, it is going to take us a long time to catch up to the way it used to be.
But if we act now, we can have a real impact on how we live on the planet in the next 10 to 20 years.
For the first time, we have the tools to make a real difference.
