With all the people hitting the roads, rails, and sky around Thanksgiving, a writer at HuffPost wondered if it is time to consider scaling back due to the damage the holiday causes the planet.
Speaking to researchers, Alexandra Emanuelli learned that the turkey alone creates the same carbon footprint as the rest of the side dishes combined. Meanwhile, a family of four flying to their destination dumps the equivalent of 10 times the CO2 emissions of the meal itself.
Emanuelli feels people should choose smaller and more locally sourced foods and perhaps meet at a location that requires less travel. What do you think?
