O Lord Forgive us our Annual CO2

Vrij Nederland (16/2007)

Vrij Nederland issue Nr. 16/2007 features a world map of TD, which visualizes the current carbon dioxide emissions by representing the yearly number of trees that each country would have to plant to compensate this pollution. The reference follows the current global remorse and the consequent outcome of a new market that offers 1:1 buy offs; e.g. passengers who want to offset the carbon dioxide emitted from their flights have the option of using a new carbon-offsetting website where they can pay to plant a tree.
