We have realised a personnal footprint test
for which after study we proposed the following value :
one hour of plane requires 500 m² of living-earth ressources...
But I recently heard a planecompanyworker state
that 100 km of a big plane requires only one litter of gazoil
for each passenger when the plane is full and is economicaly driven.
I was quite surprise, and I think it is worth investigating !
