Make the Borderland CO2 neutral or CO2 positive by paying for CO2 offsetting. Note this is not buying quotas - it is paying to have trees planted and similar which should actually make a difference.
Make the Borderland CO2 neutral or CO2 positive by paying for CO2 offsetting. Note this is not buying quotas - it is paying to have trees planted and similar which should actually make a difference. Not as good as not emitting any CO2, but a lot better than doing nothing.
Here is a spreadsheet where I try to estimate Borderland's total CO2 emissions https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1SfRsK_cdk7XDw39ZdFtHrLk1pke5xVfO8m1SkgpT7gI/edit?usp=sharing

I have estimated the emissions, being pretty pessimistic. I have not included food, as everyone would need to eat anyway. I have also not included the reduction because what you would otherwise be doing at home you are not doing. So this is probably a "worst case" guess. Anyone who knows about these things please help me make this guess better.
My results so far are that the cost of offsetting
Electricity DKR 3000
Propane burnt (cooking, art) DKR 440
Wood burnt DKR 950
Embodied energy in crap people buy for BL and dont really reuse DKR 19800 (this is a total guess as it is really difficult to work out - but it makes sense as the energy embodied in producing things is high)
Cars going DKR 6200
Planes coming DKR 38500 < this is the bad one
Stuff actually happening at BL DKR 25000
Cars DKR 6200
Planes DKR 38500
Total DKR 69000
Come on people, let's make BL one of the first completely CO2 neutral large events!
At DKR 21 per participant, it seems reasonable to do.
I will use this https://www.carbonfootprint.com/offset.aspx?o=1045 unless someone has a better suggestion - or perhaps split the money between e.g. three services.
I'm not saying CO2 offsetting is perfect, or better than not emitting CO2, but it is certainly better than doing nothing. Do note CO2 offsetting is paying for actual projects that plant trees or replace coal fires with solar panels. It has nothing to do with CO2 quotas. If you want to say anything derogatory about CO2 offsetting, do please do research first, don't just say you vaguely heard something about quotas (which is something completely different) not working.
This is exactly about Leaving No Trace

Hey friend! Welcome to the virtual drawing board of The Borderland. This is the place where we prototype the projects we'll realise during the week in the quarry.
