Not sure which thread to put this in, but since tourists often use cars...

rather counter-intuitively:

traffic signals favour cars over pedestrians

"The consequences of making it easier to drive and harder to walk are consistent with the rise of vehicle-dominated cities"

‘Green’ fossil fuels to be allowed under latest weakening of UN aviation CO2 scheme


https://www.transportenvironment.org/ne ... co2-scheme


A UN scheme being set up to tackle the climate impact of flying will credit airlines that use fossil fuels that have been declared to be ‘green’. The extraordinary concession was pushed through by Saudi Arabia, with the backing of the United States, and means that, for example, airlines burning kerosene could be rewarded with reduced obligations to buy carbon offsets simply because the refinery producing the oil was running on renewable electricity.


Considering the imminent danger of climate change there's only one way to deal with this ongoing nonsense and that's grounding all unnecessary flights. Like now.

Why not just put all the pilots in a concentration camp? That way you won't have to worry about the planes flying.
