Considering the Environment


So, what does Greta Thunberg think of all this traveling? She probably doesn't like it. Especially the travels that go by plane.

 

I have estimated that I, in the last ten years have taken over two hundred flights. Thats a lot of harm to the environment, and I am not proud of it. Especially since learning that a 10 hour flight in a Boeing 747 consumes around 150 000liters of high octane fuel (*1) that is released high up in the air where it does the most damage.

Apparently your imprint from a round trip flight between New York and California is around 20% of the imprint that an average car makes A YEAR (*2)

Write about how road trips are more environmentally friendly than flying..
