The Lancet: Air travel for global health: flying in the faceof sustainable development? (5)

25 December, 2019

Dear Chris and all

Thank you Chris for sharing you critique of the current status. It’s true that environmental degradation is surrounding us in all what we do and all what we eat and it sees that there is no escape. The impact of all this on health of people is enormous and cannot be ignored. There are people and states that don’t think of any thing except their own economic interest on the expense of the world population. They kill people by awful products and the damage on the environment and they invent medicines, machines and technology only to try to cure. More manage and more money. The absence of ethics and presence of power (military and economic) got us to this situation.

Best regards.
