A commitment not to flyPosted: January 23, 2011 Filed under: 5. Alt Transportation | Tags: carbon Comments Off on A commitment not to fly
In 2011 I’m going to see just how much airplane travel I can eliminate from my lifestyle. I have a fair amount of control over my various day jobs, so I can eliminate most of that. Getting friends and family to understand why I don’t want to jump on a plane to see them is going to be a much harder sell.
Why eliminate plane travel? Last month we focused on energy efficiency projects on our home, several of which are still in progress, but these pale in comparison to a single trip taken by a family of four across the country. Ouch.
