A single flight across country in the US produces about 10 per cent as much carbon as the total of everything else that the average American does in a year. If you can replace a jet trip with a train ride, it will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 85-96%.

Stop flying entirely! The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates that by 2050 emissions from aircraft could be responsible for up to 15 % of total global warming produced by human activities.
