finally got around to checking out we:offset – an official Nokia application. The app estimates the carbon emission (tonnes of CO2) for a commercial flight based on Climate Care standards. The app also allows you to offset the emission by “buying” a credit using your credit-card!
The interface is simple and polished.
I am left wondering who would actually whip out their credit-card for this. If anything, it raises awareness of the emissions and puts a number next to it.
I am using MaStory on the N900 to write and send this post. Lets see if it works!
