Who’s Up For Some “Flight Shaming”?

They should really start with the top members of the Cult of Climastrology, especially those who fly private

‘Flight shame’ could halve growth in air traffic

Travellers are beginning to turn their backs on air travel over concern for the environment, according to a survey by Swiss bank UBS.

The Swedish concept of “flygskam” or “flight shame” appears to be spreading.

One in five of the people surveyed had cut the number of flights they took over the last year because of the impact on the climate.

UBS said the expected growth in passenger numbers could be halved if these trends were borne out.

Global air travel has grown by between 4% and 5% a year, UBS said, meaning the overall numbers are doubling every 15 years.

But the UBS survey suggests that high-profile campaigns – like the example set by Swedish school girl Greta Thunberg, which has helped push the climate crisis up the political agenda – could trigger a change in flying habits in wealthier parts of the world, particularly in the US and Europe.

After surveying more than 6,000 people in the US, Germany, France and the UK, UBS found that 21% had reduced the number of flights they took over the last year.

Let’s not forget that only 36% of Greta’s fellow Swedes believe that climate change is mostly/solely caused by Mankind. Also, notice that these Concerned Warmists are not giving up flying, just cutting back a bit

“I will take a train from Aarhus to Cologne in Germany, and spend the night there. I will then take two TGV high-speed trains through France and Spain,” he says.

“It will be a long journey but that is part of the fun – about 24 hours of travel but I should get to see some beautiful countryside.”

He estimates that moving from aircraft to trains as his main mode of travel will be about 20% more expensive, but says his trip to Catalonia will only cost €40 (£36) more.

So, take a lot longer and cost more. Sure thing.

Only 16% of British respondents said they were cutting back on flying, but 24% of US travellers were worried enough to change their flying habits.

Just stop flying, Warmists. It’s the only way to avoid Doom in less than 12 years, ya know.

    Hell, Mrs. Animal and I are ramping up our flight schedules. We’ve got a bunch of travel bucket-list destinations in mind.

    I am so worried I have doubled the amount of open burning that I do to get more CO2 as we do have a deficit.

    Possibly there will be fewer of these idiots going to Hawaii now. At least until they get the tracks laid down.

    I’m guessing that politicians, “celebrities” and the other self-important will not see their air miles shrink.
