Of course, the reality of the situation is one that makes me sad.
Take this post on Exigency In Specie about ‘Christianity, Christians and the Environment‘:
…the amount of carbon dioxide produced by a flight to Greece for a family holiday is equivalent to all the carbon dioxide produced by all the car journeys the average family undertakes in a year.
…the amount of carbon dioxide produced to air freight 1kg of perishable fruit and veg to the UK is 6kg – whilst transporting 1kg of UK produced produce is 0.002kg.
Please try to buy vegetables that are made in your own country rather than on the other side of the world. If you are going to Europe please use the Eurostar rather than the plane if you can. I cannot blame you for wanting to go and see other parts of our wonderful world but please do not do it overly often.
Update: Archbishop Rowan talks about global warming as reported in the Times link above.
