I just read a great article about this very question. One launch/flight with the virgin or SpaceX tourism space craft uses/emits about as much kerosene/co2 as one intercontinental flight (New York - Paris or similar) with a big air liner with around 300 passengers.  So that's a lot of emissions to keep some billionaires or millionaires entertained for a couple of minutes. But at the same time if you take into account how many average people / airliners fly every day that's a staggering amount of CO2.  Now, imagine if space tourism would become a Joe Average thing, cheap and affordable, so everyone could do it for fun...
