ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the effects of carbon dioxide emissions on global warming. Transport being an acknowledged contributor to carbon dioxide emissions, it is little wonder that travel in general, along with travel suppliers and those who travel for a living, find themselves under the spotlight and no little pressure to clean up their act. Unnecessary emissions are under scrutiny and air travel is a primary target for criticism.
