Carbon Offsets

Who is buying ... Need equivalent to number of SUVs. And this is just a sneeze, not a real eruption event.

Mexico City - Mexican volcano Popocatepetl on Saturday threw a large cloud of gas and ash into the air about 80 kilometres east of the capital, Mexico City. The cloud reached a height of up to two kilometres over the 5,400- metre mountain, the national disaster protection centre said Saturday.

Ash rained down on some areas near the volcano and an area of 12 kilometres around the mountain was blocked off.

The volcano has been active for some time, and steam cloud has become an ongoing sight over its peak.
