In a mentoring session the other day, I was helping a young songwriter who felt like she was really floundering around in pursuit of her dream. She talked about how frustrating it was to tell whether or not she was making progress and how difficult it is to tell what she should be doing differently to get ahead. I told her that 99% of the people I mentor have the same questions. Since it’s such a common ailment, I have spent a good amount of time applying my psychology degree to figure out why so many people feel this way and how I got out of that mentality earlier in my career.
What is a carbon credit?
Before we start understanding about carbon credit, it is important to know about carbon emissions, or rightly put, the emissions of carbon dioxide into the environment. Carbon dioxide is one of the most common greenhouse gases that goes up into the atmosphere, along with water vapour, methane, nitrous oxide and ozone. The word “greenhouse” implies that these gases formed a layer that traps heat from the sun, causing a greenhouse effect on the earth surface. These gases will eventually escape into space gradually and this warming of the earth’s surface is important to sustain life.
