An inspiring event exploring the climate impact of aviation, flight-free travel, and whether people power can save the world.
Scientists give us little over a decade to slash our emissions, with the IPCC recommending an individual carbon output of 2-3 tons annually. Some say that's optimistic and we should be looking at no more than 1 ton each.
One intercontinental flight can produce up to 1.6 tons of CO2, with a trans-Atlantic trip emitting up to 3 tons. There is no doubt that flying less is a vital part of our action on climate change.
