ABSTRACT
The article presents the response of editor, Lisa Mastny to the letters on air travel. She said that air travel does not contribute a significant, and rising, share of global greenhouse gas emissions, and regrets that she didn't mention this in her articles. In her 2001 Worldwatch paper Traveling Light, she examined the full range of tradeoffs associated with travel and tourism, including the climate connection. It is important to note, however, that despite the many environmental and social pitfalls, the tourism industry has also brought great economic promise to many of the world's poorest nations.
