    As you may have assumed, you’re only options are boat or plane.  The carbon emissions from an overseas plane trip are less than those of a trans-oceanic boat trip.  In fact, a trans-oceanic boat trip emits twice as much carbon as a trans-oceanic plane ride.  Scientist have determined the greenest way to travel overseas is with a non-stop plane ride in coach.  A traveler can save 10 to 15% carbon emissions by flying in coach because of the space efficiency compared to first class.

    Also, the below link is a really interesting article about the greenest way to travel domestically.
