Blog: Weekly average CO2 at Mauna Loa, Hawaii on the week beginning on June 13, 2021
If humanity wishes to preserve a planet similar to that on which civilisation developed and to which life on Earth is adapted, paleoclimate evidence and ongoing climate change suggest that CO2 will need to be reduced from its current 385 ppm [parts per million] to at most 350 ppm… If the present overshoot of this target CO2 is not brief, there is a possibility of seeding irreversible catastrophic effects.⁓James Hansen
Weekly means for atmospheric CO2 from the NOAA ESRL and its Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii, on the week beginning on June 13, 2021.

More readings on climate protection,
helping you recognize the importance of voluntary carbon offset of residual carbon emissions for businesses and individuals.
How do contribute to the green recovery from the coronavirus crisis?
As observed worldwide, the usage of the internet grew more significantly, than predicted, as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Unfortunately, the impact of the internet on climate is known less than the consequences of emissions generated by commercial flights.
As the published analyzes have pointed out, however, the emissions caused by these sources are approximately equal. Both of them generate 2-2.5 percent of yearly global carbon emissions.
We have to accept that a lot of technical development is required to exclude the burning of fossil fuels from flights and to keep the internet running.
Until we find a practical solution that is accessible to all, the only way to reduce the emitted carbon is to compensate for residual emissions.
Carbon compensation is characterized by accuracy and proportionality. Firstly, it is accurate. Because it is based on the carbon footprint calculated from recorded data of inevitable carbon emissions during a previously closed period. Secondly, it is proportionate. Because only as many carbon offsets are required to credibly offset emissions, as many equal the carbon footprint calculated before.
To point out, carbon offsets represent emission reductions that have been realized by verified climate protection projects.
How to make your internet presence climate-friendly?
In light of the above, compensate for your internet presence, supporting the green recovery from the coronavirus crisis without delay.
Start with collecting the stats of your internet presence, business or personal website, blog, and social media profiles for the past 12 months.
Having the necessary data in hand, click the Website offset option on the menu of my carbon neutral website.
The table, which appears in a new window, lists the prices of the carbon offsets required to compensate for carbon emissions depending on the number of website visits.
Find the row in which your stats value falls within limits.
The final step is to request for a quote (RFQ). Enter your data and confirm the selected upon your stats price of carbon offsets.
Experience shows, when a community of like-minded people starts doing something, it creates a new norm.
