Daphne Stevens: A tip for aviators: stop flying

Published: 9/16/2019 4:00:17 PM

These beautiful late summer days when so many people are enjoying nature’s beauty, playing sports, or going to parks to play are being spoiled by small airplanes flying overhead like a hornet buzzing around your ear, drowning out the bird calls, children laughing and the beauty of quiet.

Do these aviators have the right to spoil these sparkling days for those of us who choose to be land bound? But even worse for this climate activist is the gas that is being burned, leading to more tipping points? Indeed aviators, have you read the latest climate news lately, or is what is fun for you the only thing that counts?

Please, get off your flying machines and join us down here who are fighting for the planet, our home.

Daphne Stevens
