Let There Be Green Flights
Today the whole world celebrates the International Civil Aviation Day with the purpose to generate and reinforce worldwide awareness of the importance of international civil aviation in the social and economic development of states and the role of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in promoting the safety, efficiency and regularity of international air transport. In line with the simultaneous discussion of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bali, there is a clamour all over the world to make air transportation around the world more environment friendly to lessen its impact on climate change.
As we all know that we only have one sky and one planet to shelter us, we are all responsible for protecting them both by addressing the various adverse environmental effects of our daily activities.
