The research that I have chose requires that I travel once or twice a year to Africa for field work. While I hope that the research I do will contribute to conservation of natural resources, I feel that it is also appropriate for me to offset the emissions resulting from my air travel. However, I am overwhelmed by the multitude of options for how to do so. I don't feel well-informed enough to evaluate different carbon offset schemes. Tackling this is one of my goals for 2010. So, dear readers, I ask for your advice.
Have you offset your carbon dioxide emissions? If so, how? Why did you choose that one?
Have you researched different options for carbon offsets? If so, what resources did you find most useful?
I am interested in anything you've got.
