Air Travel in the Future – Ed O’Rourke

Air travel is terribly polluting.  Hopefully the ETs can show us a better way to do things. This commentary reflects air travel during the pandemic.

I recommend an excise or environmental tax that will start low and keep going up.  Put in a provision for humanitarian travel, going to a funeral, seeing a relative who is terminally low where the traveler can obtain a refund on the tax.I invite you to see this commentary from today’s NY Times:

Do You Really Need to Fly?

Videoconferencing is good enough to replace a lot of pointless business travel.
