Travel, the environment and our links directory...?
The environmental consequence of travel and the travel industry is something that the world is becoming much more aware of. How do we respond? Is our globetrotting justified when you consider that each flight we take will damage the environment?
There's no easy answer. A forum discussion last June highlighted many members' views.
For those of you who are concerned about the environmental impact your travel is having, Peter also added a bunch of links to carbon emissions offsetting programs run around the world. There are programs listed for the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany and Brazil.
