My photo for #ClimateStrike in #Paris on March 15th. I challenge you to #staygrounded #flyingless. If you take a plane anyway, donate to for example @firstname.lastname@example.org to offset your emissions https://www.atmosfair.de/en/ . We must fund #climatejustice as much as possible. Yesterday I donated to Atmosfair to compensate all flights I did in my life: 6 flights return trip, I donated 94 Euro. Please do the same! @email@example.com is a resource of information for long-distance train journeys to replace flying.
@blipp so trains are best? Even the diesel-belching American variety? I am now officially curious. Thanks!
@blipp I think the main issue is that, for most of the U.S., there are few, if any, passenger train options for most air routes. When there are routes, you might have one or two connections per day. Shorter commuter routes are better, but you would never think of flying for those to begin with. Europe has *much* better rail infrastructure!
