San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom touts a world first for the San Francisco International Airport: the first in-airport carbon offset kiosks designed to offset your carbon footprint. Whether you believe that carbon offsets are a viable way of addressing the environmental impact of flying or you're a not-as-eco-friendly-as-we-believe person looking to alleviate some guilty indulgences, one can’t help but admire SanFran’s proactive measures.
Part of funds from the carbon offset kiosks go to help local carbon reduction efforts through the San Francisco Carbon Fund. Mayor Newsom says the city did extensive research to ensure that projects funded by the offsets result in, “real, quantifiable, permanent greenhouse gas emissions reductions.”
