Cool UK Ocean Site

The Marine Conservation Society

There is information on actions to take. Jellyfish to survey (a UK project), etc.

One place that they link to is climatecare.org "helping you to help the climate". (Another UK site). They have a system of "offsets" where people can purchase "offsets" to counteract their CO2 emissions. The "offsets" fund sustainable energy projects.

It's an interesting thing. A lot of people in the US haven't accepted the idea that people should even consider their CO2 that they add to the climate - let alone think about ways to "offset" that.

I think that countries that have not had as much Exxon Mobile and government interferance are way ahead of us in their thinking and acting on this.
