Renewable Energy Access covered a new feature in the dot.com era of travel websites. Expedia.com now offers the option to offset your air travel carbon emissions by partnering with TerraPass.

TerraPass funds clean energy projects and offers carbon calculators so people can offset all their carbon emissions. It claims to have already eliminated 150 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.

Now you can offset your carbon emissions from air travel when you purchase your tickets. I wonder how many people will actually exercise this option - considering it actually only seems to add some $20 - $30 to the price of the ticket.
