The key for providing the solution for climate change is to leverage the recent advancement of social networks that now integrate us into a global society of empowered individuals.  When applying this to the climate change problem, we were able to create a concept that we term Social Carbon. As we move into the future, renewable energy production and use will become more and more a part of our way of life and identity through sharing. GreenCoin paves the way for this future by providing an ecosystem that rewards and values the behaviors and actions necessary to build a carbon free world, and one that is free from the concomitant economic distress caused by non-voluntary, inefficient government-led programs such as cap and trade, carbon emission offset trading, and carbon tax paradigms, which have had limited success at reducing emissions worldwide.
