Carbon Emission Credits

Carbon dioxide emissions are the principal component of the "so-called" greenhouse gases.

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

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

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 benefits.

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.
