  1. I think most of us need to stop doing things like flying just to be a drop in the bucket towards making up for all the horrors our generation and past generations have heaped and are heaping on the environment. If I never fly again in my life it will be too soon. When the climate catastrophe has stabilized and we have a sustainable system of living on this Earth in place we can talk about finding sustainable ways of flying again. Do you see sustainability as a possibility in the next 10 years?, 20?,50?…
