As someone who works in climate research and a father of two, I am concerned about the impact of climate change. Due to family reason, giving up flying would be a difficult sacrifice, and one that I could not completely forswear at the moment. Professionally, this is especially difficult within my field of research where conferences and team meetings more often than not require air travel. However, I’m committed to flying less, by which I mean at least 1 to 2 flights per year compared to the usual schedule. I don’t know if that would be helpful, but against the odds, I hope.
