So after yesterday's foray into carbon footprint measuring, I started thinking "Okay so I can't avoid using X amount of carbon and there's not a huge amount of leeway there for me to do things like get flown to Auckland for work and the like. So what about offsetting?"

Apparently there are a variety of options. I have looked at three and would appreciate your input.

Today we went to Raukawa Marae. My tummy is very full (this is a common side effect of maraes I find). We learned about tuna (eels, not the fish) and about the way in which climate change parallels the Maori creation story, and also what Ngati Raukawa are doing to restore their wetlands. But I'll write about that tomorrow.
