Carbon Emission Credits
dioxide emissions are the principal component of the "so-called"
Industrial processes account for over 75 percent of the carbon
dioxide emissions, roughly 21.8 billion metric tons annually.
Deforestation due to demands for agricultural lands is the other
main culprit, responsible for 6.4 billion metric tons of emissions
annually. Trees contain stored carbon. When they are cut down,
carbon dioxide is released.
Forests and tree
plantations are seen as part of the solution since they store carbon
at a rate 20 to 100 times more per acre than pastures and croplands.
The substitution of composting and other organic techniques for
fertilizers and pesticides on tree plantations also allows for
increased carbon storage.
In rural areas where agriculture
and forests compete for land, the forests are at risk because
farmers are unlikely to protect and preserve them unless they have
an economic incentive to do so.
Renewable energy can
supply a significant proportion of the United States' energy needs,
creating many public benefits for the nation and for states and
regions, including environmental improvement, increased fuel
diversity and national security, and regional economic development
We support Home Power
by providing money to assist people interested in installing
renewable energy products including wind, solar, and other energy
saving and producing products.
How Carbon Credits Are Used
When you purchase a Meadow Planting Credit, you are investing into your and your children's future. The money is used to assist farmers and landowners to plan, restore and impliment a Meadow Planting project. The benefits are numerous and the return on investment is priceless.
