The Power to Cool the Globe

While purchasing tickets online for an upcoming show at the Charlottesville Pavilion, I was confronted with this option . .

OPTIONAL CHARGE

GreenNotes invites you to join the Charlottesville Pavilion, CLIF Bar, and Musictoday in taking steps to start global cooling. By offsetting the CO2 emissions from your trip to the show, you can help the environment.

When you drive your car to an event, it emits harmful amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) that pollutes the environment and promotes global warming. By helping fund the construction of new renewable energy sources through NativeEnergy, you can help offset this pollution. To do so, simply check the text box to the right and your credit card will be charged .40 cents in addition to the ticket price. For more information on the GreenNotes program and how to help start global cooling, visit www.clifgreennotes.com.
