    Sadly, Oliver’s Offsets ships to the US, only. Would have spent that dollar (or Euro in my case).
    Tried to check yepyou but it’s blocked in the company’s firewall for “provocative attire” – There are probably pics with fur on that site and I’m not gonna kink-shame our IT guys.

    Wow John. You’re really pushing the limits here. I can stand a lot of what you say here, no matter how much I may or may not disagree, but you crossed the line today. KIT KATS ARE THE BEST, AND REESE’S CAN GO KICK SOME ROCKS

    On behalf of Ireland, I’d like to thank John and everyone who donates for saving our whales and dolphins, we were unsure if they’d have enough trees to live through the winter in.

    You can’t reduce emissions without reducing emissions? *shocked Pikachu face*

    I’m afraid the time for ‘Offsets’ has come and gone. Corporations that have big carbon footprints need to eliminate their carbon output altogether, then they can start supporting the planting of trees and so on. Because even if there was enough space on the planet to plant enough trees to ‘offset’ what they put out, that only counts for this year; And it takes a few years for saplings to become useful in that manner, so all the years while they aren’t useful; How much extra carbon have they put into the air? So it results in more damage that they haven’t reduced in the first place. And if the big corporations want to keep their ‘greedy ways’, they need stop terraforming this planet into ‘the new Venus’, because if they think they can just run to Mars, they are delusional.

    What a coincidence. I just bought a comic book of short stories on climate change: Ten Years to Save the World juat released this year, collected by Komiket, with the works of UK and Filipino artists.

    Some of the stories were on the nose. But some were really cool and thought-provoking.

    It was kinda pricey, but I bought it at my first cosplay convention, and I do love the topic, and the art is very good. So in short, worth it.

    I do wish we can save the world. A solarpunk utopia seems so cool although I hate the less minimalistic clothes.

    Ok, the goal is clear here right? Pay enough money so that john oliver can NEVER cut down this tree. Let’s see, 1 Dollar for 5 minutes of protection. That’s 102.528$ per year. Set up the gofundme campaign right now before it’s too late!
