Yahoo supporting wind power in India, hydropower in Brazil

Company's investments aimed at offsetting its 2006 greenhouse gases.

Yahoo is purchasing offsets from wind turbines in India and investing in hydropower projects in Brazil, according to India news portal

Yahoo is planning to make up for the 250,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases it emitted last year, committing to become "carbon neutral" by the end of this year. That amount of greenhouse gases is roughly equivalent to driving 35,000 cars for a year or lighting the Las Vegas strip for two months, said Christine Page, director of climate and energy strategy at Yahoo. The company announced its plans Monday.

"We know the issue of global warming is top of mind for our consumers and employees," Page is quoted as saying.
