Thank you for writing this article, Gillian Field!
Just got this from a carbon neutral household:
"A few days after we last spoke, I bought an electric car! Really excited to see how this changes my footprint. I know I dont drive a lot so I know it won't be monumental, but still!"
Each year, the Keeling Curve Prize goes to organizations, "with a proven track record of taking greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere."

"Based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and engage with their communities over a million cups of coffee, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation developed 1 Million Cups in 2012—a free program designed to educate, engage and inspire entrepreneurs around the country. Through the power of volunteers, 1 Million Cups has grown to more than 160 communities.
As a program of the Kauffman Foundation, 1 Million Cups works with entrepreneurs, empowering them with the tools and resources to break down barriers that stand in the way of starting and growing their businesses. Mr. Kauffman believed it was a fundamental right for anyone who had a big idea to be able to bring it to life—and we're here to fulfill that mission." -1 Million Cups (Indianapolis)
