Worse than Sierra Club's pushing travel on us is their continual offerings of made in China plastic garbage like umbrellas and backpacks if you become a member. When will this nonsense stop?

Holy Land tours

We must remember that when we choose traveling over siting at home we do care about the environment by not using a lot of electric power and such things.

It depends on how discipline your self..love the Environment.

This was so very informative but I think I could have gotten the same advice from a bad parent. "Do as I say, not as I do". Think I'll go buy a pack of smokes while I'm at it.


The excuses made here for travel are empty and weak. Carbon offsets are likewise a scam. There is no trustworthy legal authority making certain that money given to carbon offsets goes into anything that yields any earth-friendly results. It's just like buying an Indulgence from the medieval Catholic Church - and just as cynically invoked.

Reduce, reuse, recycle (especially reduce) has to include the favorite pet hobbies of the left, or it's a bunch of garbage. One long haul international flight is the equivalent of thousands of miles driven in Hummers. There's no way around that. The people who undertake those travels were already motivated to support ecological causes. To claim that the travel encourages ecological policy is a false, empty cop out, and the motivation behind it is high hypocrisy.

Quit giving free passes to certain things, and the cause would be taken more seriously by general populace.
