In the course of Why Channel 4 has got it wrong over climate change Robin McKie says:
The Observer’s travel desk already gets hate mail merely for highlighting interesting destinations that might seem to encourage carbon-producing air travel
Well no. Without condoning the hate mail (which probably isn’t) the grauniad and observer frequently (almost always) runs travel sections on places you can only plausibly get to by air. They do this because their readers want them to. They run these alongside articles bemoaning the rise of CO2 from air travel. Its a contradiction they would do better admitting than try to pretend away.
