Climate Change vs. Aviation

George Monbiot got me thinking again, considering the title of his latest piece We Are All Killers Until We Stop Flying.
As far as climate change is concerned, aviation is an utter, unparalleled disaster. It's not just that it represents the world's fastest growing source of carbon dioxide emissions, because while every other source of global warming can be reduced or replaced to a high degree without a serious reduction in our freedoms, there is no means of sustaining long-distance, high-speed travel.

George has some interesting ideas. Check it out here: We Are All Killers
