GoLoco: Carpooling Meets Social Networking

I was questioning if I could investigate ways to connect to car pooling instead of using public transportation.  When driving to other states to visit family and friends what is the best mode of transportation?

Robin Chase has built an online community that has provided the opportunity to carpool.  I have yet to meet Robin Chase or use this online platform, but plan to connect online to learn more about her life and her work.

Slowing climate change is a positive outcome of creating carpooling or ride shares communities.  The result is the reduction the use of fossil fuels.  The use of fossil fuels for transportation is the second largest emission of  CO2 .  Knowing that burning fossil fuels produces CO2 emissions how is it removed from the atmosphere?  The CO2 is removed from the atmosphere by natural processes that tend to keep it in balance.   The gas exchanges with the atmosphere, ocean and land surface through microorganisms, plants and animals.
