Why Not Plant More Trees?

Air travel isn’t as efficient for commuters anymore:

Britain should drastically reduce the growth of air travel to bring greenhouse gas emissions within levels that will avoid dangerous climate change, a report by leading environmental scientists said Wednesday . . .

“If the U.K. government does not curb aviation growth, all other sectors of the economy will eventually be forced to become carbon neutral,” said Kevin Anderson, who led the research team. “It will undermine the competitiveness of U.K. industry.”

I can definitely see it undermining the competitiveness of the U.K. aviation industry, if they are forced to stop flying.

And then everyone will use their cars to get around.

  1. This isn’t anything new. Cheap British air travel provided by the likes of RyanAir has been a treehugger target for quite a while now. The idea isn’t to target commuters, but rather people taking trips to newly accessible European destinations like the Canary Islands.
