Blurb/Shorttext:
This book is a compilation of insightful articles about the spreading buzzword "Flygskam" that translates from Swedish as "flight-shaming". Together with a few professionals in their field, I tried to understand more about this concept and to discover its particularities. How much of the carbon footprint can we blame on flying? Are airlines doing too little? Do they burn unnecessary fuel every day? Can we act so radically and sustain this way of living/traveling? Is "Binge Flying" a thing? What would the world look like without planes in the sky? Should we really be shamed for flying and should it really bring us anxiety? These are questions the co-authors of this book are trying to answer. We are on the verge of a climate catastrophe and we are in desperate need for changes, but while we are definitely open to new ecological trends, we should also see the facts and make sure they are effective and not harmful. If this movement is really going to change our means of transportation - we are still about to find out.
