Greenhouse emissions impact of tourism could be four times larger than previously thought

Study including supply chains for food, clothing, transport & hospitality sums the sector to 8% of greenhouse emissions, more than the construction sector.

This is consistent with a general tendency for both the news in nature about climate impacts and the news in society about emissions sources to be worse than originally anticipated. Meaning deeper cuts in greenhouse gases, quicker, at the climate talks and in individual action across civil society.
