Donation to Campaign – Make Polluters Pay
In 2008, the Schwarzenegger administration will finalize the state’s blueprint for reducing global warming pollution 25 percent by 2020. It is critical that Gov. Schwarzenegger resists polluter pressure and create a Global Warming Solutions Fund, paid for by polluters. Unfortunately, the fossil fuel industry is urging the Schwarzenegger administration to repeat the mistakes of the European Union, which set up a global warming cap and trade program, but gave pollution permits away for free, leading to windfall profits and perverse incentives that rewarded pollution. The governor supports a cap and trade program, but has yet to commit to requiring polluters to buy the permits.
Cyclone Nargis, a massive storm has left thousands dead and many thousands more homeless in the country of Myanmar. Happyhippie.com is sponsoring a child, monthly – indefinitely in Myanmar. Please help support the families of Myanmar
YMCA – Donation to teach children to swim, who otherwise could not afford it.

Happyhippie.com takes another step to be carbon neutral and joins carbon-neutral-website.org
December 07 & January 08 Donation:
Happyhippie.com has purchased renewable energy throughwhitefence.com to offset our total energy used for this website, for the year. We selected windpower as our renewable energy choice as the owners of this site are full of hot air. 😉 WhiteFence Green are Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) . RECs are the property rights to the environmental benefits from generating electricity from renewable energy sources. While traditional carbon emissions trading programs promote low-carbon technologies by increasing the cost of emitting carbon, RECs incentivize carbon-neutral renewable energy by providing a subsidy to electricity generated from renewable sources.
This month, Happyhippie.com donated to the BooBooZoo.org – a non-profit animal shelter in Maui, Hawaii. Happyhippie.com also donated to Saveaturkey.org for Thanksgiving. We made a donation to “Pearl the turkey”.
We are currently sponsoring worldwildlife.org and are participating in their ‘Animal Adoption’
Happyhippie.com has ‘adopted’ the polar bear. As a result of global warming, sea ice in the polar bear’s hunting grounds is melting earlier and forming later each year. If present trends continue, this “king of the great white north” could be extinct by the end of this century.
