Not flying is the single personal choice that has the greatest climate effect, so as a person with a job situation that doesn’t require flying I want to fly as little as possible. My last plane trip was in October 2017, and I want my next trip to be electric, so I’m prepared to wait, although, as a family father, I may have to «give in».
For me personally, I don’t think it’s a big sacrifice not to fly but I have a problem with implicating my family and kids, as I don’t want to stop them from seeing the world. Unfortunately, in Norway the alternatives to flying are poor. I hope not flying may have an effect on others.
