My Footprint

According to the handy calculator at, my round-trip flight from Houston to London Heathrow has the following carbon footprint:

The total mileage flown is 4818 miles

The resulting emissions are 0.88 tonnes of CO2 (I assume these are like our tons, but maybe the extra ‘e’ makes the heavier.

The cost to offset the CO2 will be $13.78

I was a little disappointed. I hoped it would be more impressive.

I did manage to snag a free 2-day London Pass thanks to a sale on the British Airways website. It looks pretty handy. If you’re looking for flights to London, they’re cheapest they’ve been all summer right now.
