Nikhil took part in the TED/Lexus 2010 Green Idea competition recently. I liked his quick thinking as also the concept! A brilliant idea to spread awareness on reduction or offset of greenhouse gas emissions. Each participant was given 60 seconds to come up with their
idea. Nikhil has made it to the top 10 short list. The site above below reveals his concept. Good wishes to him to win the prize.

An extract from Wikipedia for your ready reference – Carbon credits and markets are key components of national and international attempts to mitigate the growth in concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHGs). One carbon credit is equal to one ton of carbon dioxide, or in some markets, carbon dioxide equivalent gases. Carbon trading is an application of an emissions trading approach.
