ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comment regarding global warming, in relation to its effect in the travel industry. According to the author, since the first human settlements were established climate has changed many times. The author also said that he does what he can to minimise air travel, using trains for shorter journeys, and flying wherever possible on low-cost, high-density, modern aircraft, which have far less impact than old, inefficient planes, particularly in business class.
