Published

As reflected in this recent infographic from Visual Capitalist, flying domestically and driving alone are the most carbon-intensive travel methods and taking a train instead of a short flight could reduce your emissions by 84%:

The infographic “charts the carbon footprint of transportation per passenger-kilometre for different vehicles based on data from the UK Government’s methodology paper for greenhouse gas reporting”.
