The author reflects on the Green campaign and the importance of saving energy in businesses and in the home air travel. The Climate Change Bill, passed by the government, is aimed at taxing domestic flights and setting a carbon allocation for overseas trips. The act forces the aviation industry to reduce the trips which could contribute to CO2 levels in the atmosphere and global warming. The author opines that the travel is an essential activity which cannot be restrained.
