Auto Atonement

TerraPass Enlightened drivers can rack up karma points by paying for reductions in carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to those produced by their vehicles. For annual fees ranging from $29.95 (for a hybrid) to $79.95 (for an SUV), TerraPass will subsidize wind farms, methane digesters that turn cow manure into fuel, and other renewable-energy projects. It'll also send you a windshield decal touting your good deed, so you can convert as-yet unrepentant motorists as you cruise by.
