- May 7 5:11 AMHello Green Travellers
This week's news is from the sublime to the ridiculous - great winners as
usual at the Tourism for Tomorrow Awards - heartwarming (rather than
globalwarming!) stories. Will art help to restore our coral reefs rather
than desecrating them? And a free offer.
Plus, in their meretricious to-the-death fight to keep out of global
emissions-control - not quite in the spirit of the 1947 Chicago Convention
which granted airlines freedom from tax - ATAG calls for government
co-operation. Is it something to do with the ICAO - EU negotiations about
emission-capping the airline industry? Remember airlines represent 80% of
tourism emissions (say 5% of global emissions), our industry is increasing
by 5% per annum - AND by 2050 we are bound to reduce total emissions by 50%.
Do the maths, then pray for a miracle!
First - I heartily recommend our website http://www.totemtourism.com
interviews, stories, offers - worthwhile or they wouldn't be there!
