I quit all personal flying in 2015 and my personal carbon footprint has plummeted. I’ve also taken other steps, but this has been the hardest. Parents, kids and friends are in different parts of the country (and world), and I’ve had to skip family reunions and see them less.
Other than this sacrifice, my quality of life is as good at 2 MT CO2e/year as it was at 35!
