I thought, "I can't do this anymore. I'm concerned about climate change.” I honestly haven't found a good enough reason or justification, for what flying entails, in terms of planetary impact.
I'm really looking forward to not having to travel so that I can get back down to my spiritual practice -- which at its essence is to be grounded in your locality, and not to be worried too much about what's happening tomorrow or what's happening in far-off lands, just really be present where you are.
I had done the research on climate and flying, knowing about the impact for years. I’d be sitting in a plane, knowing how much fuel and CO2 are involved, and visualizing this stuff being chucked out the back, trying to get my head around that.
It’s been a process of education and seeing how massive the impact of flying is, and my own carbon footprint. It just becomes a question of integrity.
