But holidaying closer to home can make a big impact on your carbon footprint. One short haul return flight can account for 10% of your yearly carbon emissions, and long-haul flights can completely determine your carbon impact. If you have the time you can usually get trains to European destinations to cut your carbon footprint. How people worldwide view climate change.
