Now knowing and accepting that flying is THE individual activity that is most GHG emission intense the only consequence can be to fly less or not at all in the future. Climate change is a social problem. It causes war, migration, hunger, destruction of homes. I don’t want to be the cause of other people’s harm or even death and that the guilt is collective is nothing I can accept as an excuse.
I will have one last “Good Bye” flight to Fuerteventura because I promised this to my daughter in a weak moment, but after that I am sure I am strong enough to travel by train only.
I work on the psychology of denial for climate mitigation measures and on behavior change towards much more sufficiency for sustainability. I have started to work on lobbyism as a barrier for achieving climate goals.
