HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Blueggs Newsletter NOVEMBER 2019

ANSWER: A flight from NY to London

The British band Coldplay, a performer of the 2016 Super Bowl halftime show, has decided not to launch a global tour because going on tour generates more carbon dioxide than they want. Β The band considers having a global tour is not beneficial to the environment.

According to Tristan Smith, a lecturer at University College London’s Energy Institute, air travel emits as much carbon dioxide annually as some of the world’s major economies. Climate activist Greta Thunberg, whose speech at the United Nations Climate Action Summit in September attracted lots of attention, sailed a sailboat from England to New York to avoid flying that is a major source of carbon dioxide emissions.

A flight from New York to London (one way) generates 493 kg of CO2 per person (The Guardian, 2019). The United States generates 43 kg of CO2 per capita daily. So per capita CO2 generation of the flight is equivalent to about 11 days of daily per capita CO2 generation in the United States.
