If you take an airplane trip, can you make up for the planet-warming emissions from that flight by doing things like driving less and turning off the lights in your house? The answer is yes, but one choice might be far more effective than the other. And, according to a new study, most people are bad judges of which choices have the biggest effect on their carbon dioxide emissions and their carbon footprint.
How good do you think you are at picking the best ways to reduce your emissions? Take this fun mini-quiz based on the study and see if your guesses fall inside the range of realistic answers. (Published in the New York Times on August 30th, 2020).
