CO2 emissions from aviation fuel are 3.15 grams per gram of fuel, which gives CO2 emissions from a Boeing 737-400 of 115 g per passenger km. The distance between Ontario and Brisbane is 14,782 kilometres. This means a return trip for two adds 6.8 tons of CO2 to the atmosphere. Given that this is only a fraction of Macdoc and his partner's carbon footprint I have a problem accepting that his $144 indulgence offsets it.
