What happens when a leading New Zealand scientist (and frequent traveler) rules out flying for a year? From overnight buses to epic train journeys, Shaun Hendy’s experiences speak to our desire to do something – anything – in the face of growing climate anxiety.
#NoFly confronts the hard questions of one person’s attempt `to adapt’. Was this merely privileged virtue signalling? Did it compromise his work, his life? And has it left him feeling more optimistic that we can, indeed, reach a low-emissions future?
