In his latest commentary, Professor Frank Convery, Chairperson
of Comhar - the Sustainable Development Council (SDC) - looks
at the relationship between size and sustainability.
This relationship covers such topics as -
- the impact of heavier air passengers on CO2
- the impact of bigger cars on parking space construction
and requirements - and
- the impact of big houses on scarce raw materials.
Professor Convery asks the question - should the smaller
continue to pay for the bigger? He suggests that – if you
are of the larger version – the next time when you travel
by air, you could consider purchasing your more svelt
fellow passenger a glass of wine and a meal to acknowledge
the fact that their fare is helping to subsidise your excess
