A new globally-focused website now makes it easy to keep up with what's emerging as the most crucial global issue of our time - climate change - as well as offering the chance to do something positive about it.
Carbonpositive.net offers plain-English coverage and explanation of the latest developments in the fight to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and halt global warming - the politics, the science and the finance.
The site offers the latest news, guide articles, FAQs, facts & statistics and a carbon market glossary to help de-mystify this fast growing international issue and the burgeoning 'carbon economy'.
The site is run by Carbon Positive, one of a new breed of companies offering people practical ways to fight climate change, help people in developing countries, and make a profit at the same time.
As part of that commitment, Carbon Positive sees a role for raising awareness of climate change around the world and helping widen understanding of the issues:
· What the Kyoto Protocol is all about?
· Who's doing what around the world?
· How does the European carbon market work?
· What are the options for offsetting your own domestic greenhouse emissions?
· How can I invest in sustainable energy and forestry projects to earn lucrative 'carbon credits'?
· What do the latest scientific findings mean?
These questions and more are all covered in plain English at www.carbonpositive.net, a website designed to be easily understood by the average person.
Carbon Positive arranges and manages sustainable energy and reforestation projects to cut greenhouse emissions and generate tradable carbon assets that customers can sell for cash.
The projects are in developing countries and benefit local communities as well as global climate. Carbon Positive has offices in The Netherlands, Australia, Kenya and Brazil and is run by business professionals dedicated to sustainable development, allied with like-minded companies and charities.
