I stopped flying in 2005; I have flown once for unavoidable work reasons ( not a conference) since then. My research concerns the search for more sustainable transport solutions – a field where long-haul flying to conferences is still, unfortunately the norm. Well done for taking this initiative. I hope to talk to you further about it when the article mentioned below is finished.

I have written about these issues in my last book and have supervised research on people who have stopped or reduced their flying for environmental reasons, which we hope to publish shortly.
