comment Is it possible to environmentally offset long-distance air travel?
@gnasher729: mpg in UK isn't equal to mpg in US (US gallon = 3.8L, imperial 4.5L). Myself I'm using eco-diesel using nominally 3.0L/100km (4-4.5L/100km in practice), but by American standards that would be a toy car.

-1 for repeating xenophobic propaganda. Poland has one of the lowest car theft rates in all EU, with only 42.5 car thefts per 100K people. By comparison Italy has 322.9, Sweden 304.1, the Netherlands 119.2, Germany 85.2.

AFAIK, significant problem might be finding place to park the car in Kraków.

@JonathanReez: this question most certainly does not belong on Skeptics.SE. There is no claim to verify. It belongs on sustainability.stackexchange.com

@gnasher729: let's take what EPA classifies as mid-size car, Cadillac CTS. According to EPA it's got fuel economy of 14mpg in combined cycle. That's 17L/100km. Even if you divide that by four, you're still burning more fuel per passenger-km, than in a jet. B747-8 does 2.75L/100km/passenger (86mpg/passenger). As for the buses, they're mostly running way below capacity, thus really they're at 54mpg/passenger on average

actually if you look at carbon footprint of modern airliner, then it isn't much higher than car. In fact it's lower than car with a single occupant. IIRC for B777, it comes to fuel economy of less than 3L/100km per passenger. No full-size car gets anywhere near that kind o fuel economy. Just for your consideration, one of GreenPeace's top execs commutes via air from Luxembourg to Amsterdam.
