Flying is the most energy-hungry means of travel and each passenger will produce about two tonnes of carbon dioxide for the southern African holiday mentioned. Much of the pollutants are then injected into a vulnerable part of the atmosphere.
It has become necessary to encourage such tourism only because southern nations are driven by the cosh of debt-repayment programmes imposed upon them by the rich nations of the north.
If you want a green holiday, it would be far better to catch the train to St Ives and donate the money saved to organisations that are fighting to overturn this global economic madness.
