The article reports on reducing a car's annual emission of greenhouse gases. An American company that uses a market-based system of carbon credits and debits is now giving drivers the opportunity to pay an offset for their car's annual emission of greenhouse gases. It sells what it calls the "TerraPass," which is nothing more than an expensive bumper sticker. The money paid is directed towards projects that develop clean energy to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. There are four TerraPasses available and they are renewable annually.
