Well. ~1hr vs ~1hr30. It's not the end of the world, but it is worth
noting that sometimes leaving london 5-10 mins later will get you to
Cambridge 20mins faster.

There is of course a train all the way from Amsterdam. Which is about
1/10th the emissions, not much slower and rather more civilised as you
get power and are allowed to take dangerous shit like water and a
penknife with you.  http://seat61.com/Netherlands.htm#by%20Eurostar
(from £47 each way).

Or you can use the 'Dutch Flyer' and get the ferry to Harwich. Slower,
but the ferry is mostly overnight, so rather civilised. Only 80% lower
emissions that way. It's a little mini-cruise as they've now got a
massive cruis-ship type ferry on that route.

Short-haul flying is pretty egregious in this case.
