As I said, this is just a feel-good issue. If it makes you feel good, just go ahead, absolutely. Given that in developed societies power generation, agriculture and transportation are the source of 85-90% of emissions, concentrating efforts on the 2% that is aviation is, well, a feel-good-about-oneself gesture. One could as well focus on the cement industry, that emits 2-3x more than aviation.

To put things in perspective - the bush fires in Ozzy in the last few weeks emitted 5 times the TOTAL yearly emission of Finland. Add to that the Amazonian fires, the Bornean (Bornese?), Siberian, Congolese-Angolese fires of this year and aviation doesn't even show up on the radar (pun intended)
