A growing number of people are ashamed of flying

The "flying shame" is a growing feeling among Swedes who share a concern for the environment, and could well lead to the return of night trains...

    Oh Greta. Dear girl, trying to do such good, from a wealthy, pushy family. I think you need to be educated about the different social classes and how many people have to compare prices to travel, often flights are cheaper than trains. Some people don't have a choice and also have to go to school.

    The next great movement will be clothes shame. The production and use of clothes is extremely dirty and CO2 producing. Let 2020 be the first year of not buying more clothes!

    Hard to catch a train across the Atlantic. But once I am in Europe I will take trains whenever I can. Sometimes it doesn't work, usually it does.

    Unfortunately I live on an island so I don't have that luxury 😔 I'd rather a train. Less stressful than flying

    It's shame that there is still no initiative for making the maglev network worldwide, at least across the Eurasian continent, with a nuclear power plant in the middle of some "nowhere". It would also connect the areas improving communications and peace efforts by the way ;)

    Nice that some people have so much money so they take 2 weeks of vacation. They are actually saying to poor people, dont travel.
