Well I was trying to sell the TRAIN. Not some high-speed non-stop jet.
And if you plug in
a Prius, or a flight from St Louis to Albuqueque, NM and return...you get exactly the same tonnage of carbon discharge.
But if you do the same trip on a train, you get only 10% of the carbon burned and discharged into the atmosphere as with a Prius or plane.
So you could do that trip by train for the next TEN YEARS...to equal the carbon you just discharged into the atmosphere in the last 30 days. Welcome home.
