<<1 passenger, flying one way from NEW YORK, USA (JFK) to SAN FRANCISCO, USA (SFO) ( 4,149 Km ), in Economy Class, generates about 337.26 Kg of CO2>> See: http://www2.icao.int/en/carbonoffset/Pages/default.aspx

I do not believe that 327.26 kg is equal to "two or three tons". Tele, before you spout off at the mouth, please research. You know, Google is your friend.

Likewise, 1 ton equals 907.18474 kg. See: http://www.asknumbers.com/tonnes-to-kilograms.aspx

Therefore, it appears to me that the one-way trip from JFK to San Francisco would take a little over 1/3 ton of carbon emissions, a far cry from your claim.
