Publication Date Jan 1, 2013

Abstract

Climate change is the single most important global environmental issue facing the world today.The tourism industry plays a role in the global anthropogenic impact of carbon dioxide(CO2) emissions.Climate change and its associated implications are beginning to emerge as a major topic of discussion and research within tourism studies.The tourism sector uses an extensive range of transport energy.This includes moving visitors to,from and within tourist destinations,along with travel to accommodation facilities and tourism activities.Tourist destinations cover land areas that include forests,lakes and farms.These features can absorb carbon dioxide through photosynthesis and sediment accumulation.The calculation and analysis of carbon sources and storage sinks,within tourist destinations,is important for emission reduction policy and to encourage the tourism sector to save energy.Further,it is also the basis of a new research field examining the relationship between tourism and the environment.Using the Lushan Scenic Area in Jiangxi province,China,as a case study,we calculate and analyze the carbon emissions and associated absorption in this region in 2010. The results show total carbon emissions in the Lushan Scenic Area were 108,697t in 2010.Local residents contributed to 19.52% of emissions while tourists accounted for 80.48%.Of the total carbon discharged by locals,food consumption accounted for 82.89%,energy use 11.79%,and traffic emissions 5.31%.Of the total carbon discharged by tourists,traffic emissions accounted for 50.2...
