Mandatory CO2 use warning labels on travels by air and sea

In many countries, such as in the United States, Canada, India, Brazil, Australia and a number of EU countries, it is mandatory with health warning labels (HWLs) on tobacco and/or alcoholic products.
In a similar way, when advertising and promoting travels by air and sea CO2 use warning labels ought to be required. This is something that the EU could recommend its member countries to implement.
In this connection, it should be emphasized that climate compensation is no solution. There are no carbon neutral airplanes or cruising ships. To stay on the ground, if possible, is the solution.

    shouldn't fossil fueled cars and trucks be covered as well?

      This is a great idea to nudge people towards more sustainable transport options

        I think the idea of introducing CO2 use warning labels on travels by air and sea is an excellent one. It will help to make people aware of the number of carbon emissions they generate when they choose to travel by these means.
