This graph, produced by the most excellent Sightline Institute,  correlates travel mode to carbon emissions  per passenger mile. No surprises, but an instructive graph nonetheless.

    Nice graph, Mike. Actually, from what I’ve read it’s airplanes that are usually the worst offenders pound-for-pound because of the long distances they travel. I suppose it depends on the mileage to determine whether or not airplanes are top offenders or just top 3. This issue is actually beginning to move into the mainstream, as the NY Times had an article about it recently.

    Yeah, its interesting for sure. I just hope all the bike commuting I do off-sets all the flying, though I doubt that it does.
