Climate warning

France banning domestic short-haul flights? Well, not really!

France banned domestic short-haul flights!!!!! Well, at least, this is what has been announced and shared by the media and here on We Don't Have Time. But, SPOILER ALERT: this is kind of fake news. Sadly, France did not ban domestic short-haul flights when train alternatives exist - France only did so for 3 flightsβ€”accounting for 2,5% of total domestic flights. The law specifies 5 criteria according to which flights can be banned, and those criteria are so permissive that only 3 flights are forbidden (Orly-Nantes, Orly-Bordeaux, Orly-Lyon). And only from Paris Orly, not Paris Roissy!!! Only 2,5% were banned in reality. The measure's climate ambition is thus considerably reduced if not only symbolic... When will the French government take real and impactful climate policies?

      It's absurd to note that we could have been hoodwinked to think that this ban has ben effected.

          Short-haul flights are particularly harmful to the environment when considering the distance travelled, as emissions are particularly high during take-off.

            Very unfortunate to have praised them when they do not deserve it.
