Sounds crazy – flying without incurring the cost of CO2 emissions.
However – I found an interesting website that helps calculate the ‘carbon cost’ of flying and the remedy to neutralise that usage.
The example given – for a medium haul flight – is something I do on a weekly basis. For example a round trip from Salt Lake to New York. To counteract this I need to purchase two trees. Or about five trees per month. That’s over fifty trees per year. Ouch.
You can calculate your own impact here.
