Flying is actually more efficient than driving


Truth: It is true that a single person in a car cruising down the motorway at 70mph, uses more energy per kilometre travelled per passenger than a plane. But when a car travels more slowly it becomes much more efficient. And obviously, putting 5 people in a car makes it use 5 times less energy per passenger!


UK-wide statistics suggest that – on average – flying uses around 1.3 times more energy than driving.


The real problem is that on one return flight to Australia you travel over 30,000km, a distance that the average person drives in 2.5 years...
