Counting The Cost Of Carbon Emissions

Further to our recent Carbon Emissions calculations we looked at the cost of offsetting the carbon saved through the use of nanotechnologies (many companies offer this service, and it involves planting trees and building windmills, though not seeding the ocean with iron filings).

Assuming a figure of around $15 per ton, which is what we were quoted by The Carbon Neutral Company, the cumulative cost of the carbon dioxide that would not be emitted through the use of the nanotechnologies identified in our report comes to a reasonably impressive $44.9 billion between now and 2014.
