I realized that I am flying well too much for conferences. My carbon footprint is not acceptable — more than 100,000 kilometers in 2019. Just to deliver talks.
I want to change that and decrease my carbon footprint. I do not think it is possible to stop flying, but I do believe that people should reduce the number of trips.
