Oh, BBC, never change. Here’s a quote from an article on the latest recommendations from the IPCC:
If you fly regularly, replacing flying with other forms of transport may have a bigger impact on your carbon footprint than changing your diet. A passenger’s carbon footprint from a one-way flight from London to New York is just under half a tonne of greenhouse gases. Switching from a regular petrol vehicle to an electric car could save more than double that over a year.
Right. If I drive an electric car from London to New York instead of flying, I could save a bunch of carbon emissions?
