EDITORS NOTE: This article is a textbook example of how public virtue signaling is the primary goal for left-leaning people, and how they will display industrial strength pretzel-logic to make sure they support their agendas and can still virtue signal to their friends. It’s clear that the author of this article enjoys traveling internationally, meeting different people and being introduced to new cultural experiences, which is a perfectly acceptable form of enjoyment. That said if you claim to care about climate change, it’s really hard to justify long distance international flights for pleasure. As I stated public virtue signaling is a high priority thing for some people and this author feels that international travel makes them more worldly, cultural aware, and sensitive to other people. Having this cultural sensitivity and cosmopolitan world is so important the author somehow justifies that flying jumbo jets around the world is perfectly fine and isn’t impacting the environment in a negative way.
