    People can catch the train…or in Europe use web based rideshare systems which are growing strong…principally out of Germany (where they have been doing it for years) 🙂

    it’s just a tax – i hate to point out the obvious but you’re being used. the environmentalists are pawns in the political game. I like breathing fresh air as much as the next guy but good luck making any headway when china, india and almost any other emerging nation will be polluting up a storm. Good chance we’ll all kill each other or some other cosmic action beyond our control will do us in before our emissions will.

    Dude – You choose to be part of the solution, or part of the problem. Humanity has of course screwed things up, at the same time it has also avoided disasters – no thermonuclear melt down (so far), market internvention on CFC’s and Sulphur emissions. Sure…you can hide in your hole and be a doom merchant – or you believe humanity has always needed some people to make an effort, and today is no different.

    well if it takes 1.2 tons of CO2 to offset going from London to USA then in theory thats only another 14 Euros for the flight, as the price for carbon allowance giving the right to emit 1 ton of CO2 is 14 euros and split 14 euro’s between a couple hundred customers is nothing at all……..well thats in theory anyway lol.
