RE: [hreg] Travel & CO2 offsets
- So how would a person be able to verify the companies that are legit? Are they all a scam? Is there a list like the ones for charities that you can verify the information?

Subject: Re: [hreg] Travel & CO2 offsetsI just returned from Denver flying Continental. Both flights were completely full, even first class. I didn't travel standby, just regular old advance purchase ticket. I had no trouble getting on either flight.
I did book my ticket through Expedia, and Expedia gave me the chance to buy CO2 offsets for my flight for an extra $5, which I did. This was done through something called "Terra Pass", more info at www.terrapass. com.
