MOST SHOCKING STAT


Just two percent of people were worried about the impact of flying on the environment? Apparently a great tan and relaxing holiday is far more important. “Holidays should have no pressures attached.”


But what about global warming and climate change? Aviation emissions are the fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions generated by us humans!

“There’s nowhere to go but Butlins [really?]” “Away of course: no rain, beaches, culture, exotic food. Yes please!” “I want to see the world!” “The weather here is sh**e!” “I don’t like the people here.” “I love England a lot but it’s sooooo cold.”
