I know just myself stopping it is not going to stop planes taking off. But if we all just use that as a reason to continue, then there is no possibility stopping it. Im kind of resigned to the idea that whatever I do personally we're all f**ked. I just want to stop being such a disproportionate part of the problem (most people dont fly afterall) and live more sustainably. It will make me feel just a little bit less guilty when it all turns to s**t. When Im told what im doing is stupid and wrong and why and I stop, then in the future when it affects me more directly I dont have to hate myself so much. Its not fuzzy logic: You dont shit where you eat.

Aircraft have suddenly become a whole lot less attractive to me now I have come to equate them with gas flares and stupid patio heaters. Before I thoght of them as beautiful and powerful things that soared in the air but now they just seem counter-productive, energy wasting and damaging. They solve one problem of how to get from A to B fast while making another bigger problem. Its hard to get my head around it since I have loved them for so long!
Please tell me what you think about it. As a former aviation enthusiast Id like to hear your thoughts.
