To fly-everywhere vacationers that worry about climate change

To the type of tourist who flies all over the world, and then laments climate change, you had better have a lot of carbon offsets. Know this, to keep the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from increasing, there is a per capita per year carbon allowance, it is somewhere between 1 and 2 tons per person per year.   Just one long distance plane flight for a person already exceeds that allowance. 

It is ironic that to save the world we will need to avoid long distance visits (or else, find carbon offsets).
