comment Is it possible to environmentally offset long-distance air travel?
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.

comment Why is security screening done at the gate at AMS (Schiphol airport, Amsterdam) in the non-Schengen area?
This doesn't explain why the difference for Schengen vs non-Schengen. Especially given that passport control is centralized.

"Is this typical in other European airports?" Not that I know of. I've see ones with centralized security for all (eg. Madrid-Barajas), as well as per-gate security for all (eg. Zurich).
