I have a question: in terms of travelling, if were being serious about climate change does that also mean travelling less considering air pollution and plane travelling?

I've definitely heard planes are worse than cars, so source plz

(it might be about solo travelling?)

Cars? IDTS. According to this studio, the four most polluting actions are transatlantic flights, more than two children, meat consumption and the use of cars.

Unfortunately, yes. And it sucks, but the amount of CO2 being released in the air via planes is changing the climate so rapidly its devastating our resources.

I found out about this whole thing after reading this on Vox. It isn't perfect, but activists are suggesting we just stop flying altogether (or at least, travel less than we do) - https://www.vox.com/the-highlight/2019/7/25/8881364/flying-shame-climate-change-airline-greta-thunberg

People won't stop traveling. What needs to be done is airlines having less flights (which won't happen lbr), I mean do you really need 6 flights per day to NYC? Nah.

Using a private jet is extremely selfish and damaging to the climate. These people could fly with 300 other normal passengers instead of getting a private jet and pollute air because of 1 person.

I'm trying to travel more sustainably, so not taking a plane as much as possible. You can still travel sustainably by train, and car is certainly not the worst. I'm trying to do more road trips, see my country, etc.
