Has anybody herd of or know of the estimated level of carbon being emitted into the atmosphere by the irruptions in Iceland?
The answer may equate to twelve months of air travel.
This may be the real reason for the recent ban in air travel.????
Whilst I have sympathy for those effected by this Volcanic eruption,especially the Icelanders,the skies have been fantastically clear the last few days despite the ash clouds. It's a pity as it looks likely to be business as usual tomorrow. Ah well all good things come to an end !
On the other hand I heard somone being interviewed yesterday who had been stuck in Helsinki and had taken trains via Stockholm, Dortmund, Calais etc to get home. He'd worked out that his carbon footprint for the journey was nearly identical to if he'd flown back.
