From Here to There, Which is Greener?

The longtime Gas 2 friends, contributors, and all-around awesome people over at One Block Off the Grid (1BOG) have just released a shiny new infographic comparing the carbon footprints of planes, trains, and automobiles as they make trips across town, and across the country. Despite missing some obvious “ringers” (I’m pretty sure a 150+ cc scooter or small-displacement motorcycle would have walked away with top honors here) the graph has a ton of great information … and some surprising results for trains and planes in some circumstances.

Were you surprised by the numbers? Do you think they skewed too heavily against cagers cars? Let us know what you thought, in the all-new Gas 2 comments section!
