This from Phys.org: Aviation emissions’ impact on larger than on climate study finds
What this all means is that we have to commit to flying less.
Over on Twitter Daniel Katzenberger made this observation on this latest news re the impact of aviation, and I agree 100%:
“I propose that there are three primary reasons why people fly: pay, prestige, and passion. I think we should all recognize what is motivating us to fly and then to think deeply whether this motivation is worth reducing humankind’s remaining carbon budget.”
We already have the technology to replace most business meetings that we would normally fly for with high quality video calls. The same can be said about events.
The sooner we make the necessary sacrifices to reduce emissions the better.
