I'm asking why air travel have privilege over other means of transportation?
There must be a reason why, as I very rudely said to a pilot, all the idiots are encouraged to fly around in circles. I say fly in circles because most of them end up back where they started from.
Millions spend their money voluntarily on air travel to participate in the ruse?
Artificial climate change and disruption of stable cultures are my guesses.

I have a good memory, trails in the sky are not in my memory for my first 30 years at least. I don't like them no matter what explanation they can give me.
Global trade is a major contributor to the polluted mess our children will be left with. If all those business people stayed at home and tended vegetable gardens the future of humanity would be far better. It is a personal choice.

I think you've hit the nail on the head there.
All this talk about industry cutting emissions and carbon taxes.
Meanwhile air travel and the huge impact contrails have on climate change are getting a free ride.

Classing everybody who has ever flown on a plane as an idiot is a bit harsh, in my opinion.
