What is climate change?
Climate change is a natural phenomenon and normally takes
place over several centuries. However, the term “climate
change” is now being used to refer to the current climate.
This is because recent
evidence shows that the global
climate seems to be changing
more rapidly than usual, as a
result of human behaviour.
Air travel and other forms of transportation emit high levels of
the greenhouse gases which can cause climate change,
including carbon dioxide (CO2).

Sustainable travel
The government believes that by 2020, air travel could be
responsible for 10% of the UK’s total CO2 emissions.
Many people are now looking for more sustainable
methods of travel, including:
rail
bicycle
coach
boat.
What advice would you give to tourists looking
to reduce their impact on the climate?
