    It will take years (more likely decades) for space tourism (aka rocket flights) to approach anywhere close to flight rates like commercial jetliners.  

    Even on a per-capita (I assume you mean on a per-flight) basis, the rocket runs for minutes versus hours on a jet flight.

    If the fuels are chosen correctly (Liquid Hydrogen and Liquid Oxygen) CO2 is not even a byproduct of rocket flight.

    Lots of more effective places to work to fix Climate Change in my opinion.
