Something I haven't noticed (and sorry if it's escaped my attention)
in the discussion on the don't fly for art pledge is that there should
be a recognition that we shouldn't go by ship or have anything shipped
for art either. Possibly given that shipping produces twice the
emissions of flying it should be this rather than flying ?
As Helen an Pall have mentioned it has be a little relative to your
location...whereas for the many people in the UK who cross the channel
by ship each year, they may actually produce less carbon by flying and
even less by going by train. As most art trips are subsidised the more
expensive options are possible but for the many who are less
financially solvent crossing the channel by boat is still the cheapest
way of getting to the continent.
Of course as Marc says it's a matter of balance rather than absolutes
and I would add proportion to this too. My hats off for all who are
taking the pledge and armed with the knowledge of other even higher
emission options to avoid we can all cut out unnecessary carbon
I'll have bacon with mine !
