@jliebling asked the Naked Scientists:
Wrt: Iceland Volcano - What about CO2 produced by all the additional car, bus, train and boat journeys?

What do you think?

Airplanes also release CO2 and I don't believe the per person difference from other forms of transportation is very large, so there was probably very little difference in the overall scheme of things.
