$880 and 70 years…

I just tried the Nature Conservancy’s online calculator for estimating your carbon footprint and determined that, while our footprint for this household of 4 is supposedly much smaller than the US average (44 tons versus 110; the world average is 22), to offset that with the Nature Conservancy’s offset program (mainly planting trees, I believe) would cost $880 and take up to 70 years. And that’s just for one year’s worth of carbon.
