This weeks question is one that has been a fair bit of media attention lately, with people like Matt Daemon, Megan Merkel & Prince Harry have been criticized for flying around the world whilst also preaching to care about the environment and climate change. It seems only the most fanatical climate activists like Greta Thunberg have abandoned flying altogether, with very few others able to follow this example. The question is whether you think people who are engaged with environmental concerns should find other methods of travel, and indeed whether flying is something that contradicts being an eco warrior.
Your answer will depend on many things, such as your belief in climate change being real, the impact of flying compared to other activities, or the importance of living sustainably. You may decide to focus on facts and figures, or else you may prefer to focus on morals and ethics. If you would like to share not just what you think but what you do that would also be great! Maybe you found a different balance and are not 100% against flying, or found another way?!
