Carbon Off-Sets and Hollywood

Professor Bainbridge takes a look, and sees offsets as a legitimate tool. His conclusion:

Maybe the answer is not to demand that Hollywood elites cut their consumption, but simply to insist that they document their purchase of carbon off-sets before hectoring the rest of us?

Should we all pay some? Having never driven a car in my life, I may not need one. But I'm an air-conditioning freak and could be persuaded to pay for an offset. How do we democratize this?
