The Royal Wedding is said to have produce 12 times as much greenhouse gases than Buckingham Palace in a whole year. Ouch! They missed the royal opportunity of the century to make a worldwide statement that trash has no class. But they blew it. And blew it big.
According to Time Magazine, “Celebrations on the day could be responsible for an estimated 2,808 tons of CO2, while less than 13 tons is generated by guests accommodation and energy use as well as the landfill and catering for the lunch reception and dinner at Buckingham Palace. And that’s not even including the 400,000 spectators, who will produce an additional 3,957 tons of CO2 by traveling on the tube and a further 200,000 arriving by train to watch the event in London.”
