The flight ban has highlighted a subject which I have written about in previous posts.

In the future, we will have to consider a time where we don’t have Kerosene, a fossil fuel which aircraft require to fly. We rely so much on flight to help with the day to day running of the world, what happens when flying doesn’t become an option?

I’m not saying the world would shut down, but things will take much longer to function. Take the business world for example. The men in suits wouldn’t just be able to hop on a flight to attend a business meeting. Car, train or ferry travel would be the only forms of realistic transport.

The enterntainment world is another industry where progress would be a lot slower. Acts on tour who rely on flying to make sure they pack in as many dates as possible would struggle to keep large amount of tour dates they want to complete.

You see where I’m going with this. Every industry would suffer a slow-down, not a complete stop, but enough of a slow-down to create a negative effect. It’s situations like this where you realise how much the word relies on air travel, and in turn fossil fuels. Oil is soon to run out, and if this hasn’t been a big advert for extra investment in renewable energies then I don’t know what would be.
