Refusing to fly has lost me my job as a climate researcher. It’s a price worth paying Gianluca Grimalda

Air traffic represents less than 2-3% of the global CO2 emissions whereas road traffic accounts for around 10% of these direct emissions. Still, planes remain among the most polluting means of transport, together with cars.

      This is a scientist who was fired for believing and fighting for the cause. It is imperative that we also fight for him to regain his rights to employment

            We must sacrifice for our nature if we are going to save it.

              Loosing a job trying to protect nature is sad,but I agree it's a price worth paying,maybe sooner they will realize the mistake they did.

                Talking of commitment this is a great commitment. If we all had such minds we will go a long way in saving our environment.

                  @joseph_githinji This kind of commitment is what we lack in our leaders.

                    In the article, the author highlights his choice to refuse flying for environmental reasons, even if it led to the loss of his job as a climate researcher. He argues that while air traffic contributes a relatively small percentage of global CO2 emissions (2-3%), planes remain one of the most polluting means of transport. This underscores the dilemma of addressing climate change, where personal sacrifices and professional consequences may be necessary to combat the broader issue.
