I greatly reduced flying in the last years, and although it’s sometimes hard it is also very rewarding. I imagine a plane having monster truck wheels far down there, crushing animals and people in its way. It seems easier for the brain to understand than the destruction coming through greenhouse gases.

I found this page because I searched for a group of people who not only understand my choice, but are backing it up.

I believe that when a group of people put non-flying (or flying just 1000 km or so a year) high in priority, it might be easier to change. And it may lead to policy changes for making flights more expensive, which is precisely what we need in the longer term.

I study Urban Planning, and I am very interested in how we can plan for a greener future!
