The ONset of Glenn Beck’s Anti-Global Warming Agenda

Glenn Beck – the radio and TV host is an unabashed skeptic of global warming. No wonder then, he doesn’t mind being full of hot air. And that has been reinforced, thanks to his latest stunt: the Carbon ONset Program for “Offsetting the Offsets”.

The ONset of Glenn Beck's Anti-Global Warming Agenda

In what appears to be an attempt to poke fun at those who believe in global warming and its potential for catastrophe, Beck has launched the program with a view to nullify the efforts of the Democrats to make the Democratic National Convention a green event.

From his website:

What can you to help? Take part in our carbon ONset program. We are asking you to make just a few small sacrifices to completely wipe out any potential energy savings the Democrats claim credit for…

Sign up for our carbon ONset program. Use more energy for mother nature. Do it for the earth (or more accurately, the people living on it.)

Any takers?

Denver to Host Greener Events through Carbon Offsets

Denver became the first city to incorporate a carbon calculator along with offset options on its convention and visitors website when the Denver Metro Convention and Visitors Bureau (DMCVB) launched the carbon program yesterday. The city is hoping that the offset program will encourage organizers to hold greener events by neutralizing their emissions.

The event calculator is a comprehensive one that takes into account energy requirements associated with travel, venue usage, disposal of waste and water use. Once the carbon footprint of the event has been determined, organizers can purchase carbon offsets at this website. The proceeds will be used to undertake energy efficiency and renewable energy investments that will cut down greenhouse gas emissions.

The carbon offsets initiative has come at a good time, with the Democratic National Convention 2008 just around the corner. Apart from event planners, individual visitors looking to offset their accommodation and travel emissions will also be able to use the calculator.
