Tourism / Airplanes / Travel / Cruise ships
Cruise ships are no better than airplanes. In addition to their
“exhaust fumes, [they've] been caught discarding trash, fuel, and sewage directly into the ocean."
"Cruise ships...use toxic heavy fuel oil...described as [the] 'dirtiest of all fuels'."
A tourism boycott would bring layoffs: “In 2018, [tourism] generated 10% of global GDP.”
However painful, maybe it's better to tell hotel and restaurant employees the truth:
conventional tourism has to face the consequences of a changing atmosphere.
"Restaurant [and]...resort [worker's] income...depends on the weather.”
“Covid-19 dramatically curtailed Western imports and tourism for a time.
The consequences in poor countries were devastating. Hunger rose, and child mortality followed.”
The biggest tourist problem remains air travel & the aviation industry has done little about it.
“Airlines...[pollution-reduction attempts] were...wiped out by [their]...annual increase in emissions.”
"Green initiatives marketed by airlines [have been labeled] as 'uncertain' or 'unrealistic'."
