says: One fewer child per family can save 'average of 58,6 tonnes of CO2-equivalent emissions per year'.
So, if this kid would reach the age of 80, that's 4688 tons for the life.
Obviously each of us contributes with average 5000 tons, to have an even figure.https://www.icao.int/envi...Offset/Pages/default.aspx
calculates the CO2-equivalent of a whole plane for a round trip LHR-CPT at 253,3 tons.
They will use at least one whole plane for their Africa trip, counting all RPOs and delegation etc.
So with that ONE tour, they will burn what an average person contributes in 20 years of life.
Add the OZ/NZ tour at, let's generously say double of what we calculated for the return flight for Capetown,
they have already burnt the equivalent of 60 live years of an average person with just two tours.
One more tour, and the whole life equivalent of Jane Doe is all used - by the Royal Highnesses, in just like 6 weeks tour time.
From that point of view, he should refrain from even thinking about a second child.
And simply shut up.
