The real cost of air travel

It might be cheap, but it’s going to cost the earth. The cut-price airline ticket is fuelling a boom that will make countering global warming impossible.

Unless the boom in cheap flights is halted, say Friends of the Earth and Greenpeace, Britain and other countries will simply not be able to meet targets for cutting back on the emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) that are causing the atmosphere to warm, with potentially disastrous consequences.

Hmm, in the past 5 months, I’ve travelled 16,000 miles by air.
