It wouldn't need to be "anti-travel." Maybe carbon conscious? Not all travel is excessively carbon consumptive, and if air travel is (with current technology), maybe that is something worth discussing in an air travel forum.

But groupthink rears its lovely head and "we all know that climate change due to mankind and CO2 is the culprit" which unfortunately cannot be proven as the models keep demonstrating that they are flawed. Henny penny and the sky is falling.

One thing is clear - we are approaching 10 Billion inhabitants in a world that probably could safely (and carbon friendly) support 4 Billion. Shut down 6 Billion wood fires and the amount of carbon in the atmosphere would drop significantly.

This is not the venue for a climate change war.
I respectfully disagree. At this point in history, the only members of the scientific community questioning (let alone outright denying) man's vast influence on climate change are
(a) North American, and
(b) heavily funded, directly or indirectly, by extraction industries (or, to a far lesser extent, carbon consumers)
We probably all wish that this were not an issue for aviation. But it is, and pretending otherwise doesn't change that.

This really has been proven, one way. There is no serious debate about that.
