Interesting environmental fact of the day
Every kilogram of carbon-based fuel that is burnt releases around 3 kilograms of carbon dioxide. So when 2500 kg of fuel is burnt on a UK domestic flight, that is over 7 tonnes of carbon dioxide produced. A sensible-sized tank of car fuel (40 litres/9 gallons) when used releases about 100 kg of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
