'British airlines need to do more to help passengers offset carbon emitted during flights, according to a new report published today.
The publication from the Environmental Audit Committee calls for more carriers to offer comprehensive carbon offsetting schemes as awareness of climate change increases among the public.
Committee chairman Tim Yeo told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that airlines have a "duty" to make such facilities available to their customers when they purchase a ticket.'

So A.net, what do you think? Is offsetting effective in your opinion? Could it save the industries un-avoidable emmisions?
IMO I think that this is the way forward, but it needs to be done now like VirginBlue and DL (?) have. Everyone is using the industry we love as a scapegoat, when in fact power generation and vehicle emissions are by far the biggest contributors.
Is carbin offsetting the right choice?
