People around the world are ditching planes and hopping on trains to reduce their carbon footprints and the negative effects that frequent airplane use can have on the environment — all thanks to the new trends of “flight shaming” and “train bragging”.
The movement first started in Sweden under the name flygskam — which loosely translates to “flight shame” — when a group of notable public figures, including athletes and opera singer Malena Ernman, mother of 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg, announced that they were no longer going to use airplanes to travel.
Thunberg began to highlight flygskam when she sailed across the Atlantic from England to New York — a 15-day-long trip — and documented the entire journey on social media.
Look! I care about the planet. Instead of taking a seven-hour flight, I wasted spent half a month traveling between continents. Suck it, losers!
What a retard. Anyway, I'm waiting for "sail shame" as the new clowns simply start swimming across the Atlantic.
