The title asks it all, but I’ll make it more poignant. Say I blow cigarette smoke in a baby’s face. Shocking, isn’t it? Horrible. Unconscionable. Probably criminal, like assault.
But if I burn tons of jet fuel to visit the Amazon under the guise of ecotourism, people seem to view it as healthy. How is this difference possible?
You could say because blowing smoke in someone’s face is directed. Still, the jet exhaust still affects people and it’s millions times more.
What do you think? Have we gotten our priorities wrong?
