DUH! Whodathunk it?

"Tourists deepen carbon footprint
Carbon emissions from visitors' air travel to New Zealand equal total emissions from the country's coal, gas and oil-fired power generation, say University of Otago scientists.

Physics researchers Inga Smith and Craig Rodger say the greenhouse-gas emissions from visiting tourists are far greater than had been thought.
The researchers evaluated the feasibility of potential measures to offset the emissions to make the visitors' travel carbon-neutral.

Dr Smith said domestically based scenarios involved increased reliance on sustainable energy sources or reducing emissions.
"Unfortunately, none of the scenarios currently appear to be economically or technically feasible."
