Daily Tip: November 20, 2007

Planning a vacation? Skip the plane tickets and take a train instead. A transcontinental airplane flight that’s 80 percent full can generate 2.5 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. And we don’t have to tell you how bad driving is. Depending on the type of train and the length of your trip, train travel creates just 4 to 15 percent of the CO2 emissions, per passenger, than going by plane. Plus it’s a great, safe, and unique way to see the country.
