Following on from measuring my household carbon emissions, I created a list of every flight I've ever taken (that I can remember):
Domestic flights: 26,593 km International flights: 135,255 km
Then I used the multipliers from carbNZero to calculate the CO2-e emissions associated with those flights.
Total emissions: 40.6 tonnes CO2-e
The next step is decide what to do about that number.
The next major step in calculating my total lifetime carbon emissions would be to work out my road transport emissions. At the moment that seems like a lot more work (and guesswork).
I could: A. guess it's about two/three/four(?) times my flight emissions or B.
Fly Wellington to Takaka?

My brother set up a 50 Hectare carbon sink forest revegetation project in Golden Bay called Project Rameka. I would like to go there from time to time to do volunteer work. What's the best way to get there?
I'd want to take a bicycle, which would add to the cost a bit.
The CO2E numbers come from CarbonZero.
Double all the numbers to get the return values.
* Plus bike
So this suggests the "ferry and car" option is the worst - it's high in both time and carbon.
