Climate Protection Goes Medieval…Ushers In New Age Of Indulgences And Almsgiving

-

The other day as I was looking to book a hotel in the city of Hamburg I came across the Novum Style Hotel Hamburg.

What caught my eye was that the booking and price conditions allow guests the option of offsetting the CO2 emissions that their stay produces.

According to the Novum’s reservation page and price calculator, a two-night stay in a “Style Class” room (for example) from November 25 to 27 costs 458.00 euros, but that such a stay would produce some 144 kilograms of climate-damaging CO2. But not to worry, for only €3.86 extra, it is possible to offset these emissions and allow you as the guest to sleep soundly without any burdening of your green conscience.
