AVIROOK SEN Writer; Power to the People (Please); p214 A: “Simon and Garfunkel’s song ‘America’ and the line, ‘It took me four days to hitchhike from Saginaw’ in it. To find out why, I travelled to Saginaw in Michigan and about 40 other small towns in the United States. That was my first book, Looking for America. @avirooksen PAUL RICHARDSON Writer; Back to the Land; p230 A: “There are several travel-related songs on Joni Mitchell’s beautiful Hejira album. Much of her work is about the melancholic pleasures of voyaging alone. ‘I’ve been travelling so long/How am I ever gonna know my home/When I see it again?’ she sings in ‘Black Crow’. It’s a sentiment I can identify with.” @paulgrichardson SOITY BANERJEE Writer; 50 Champions of Sustainability; p135 A: “I love Bill Bryson’s sense of humour. Also the…

editor’s letter

As I write this letter, a 16-year-old girl has set sail from Plymouth in England to New York City to address the United Nations about the climate crisis. She’s also a potential Nobel Prize laureate. I should mention that I’m writing this letter from an airplane—and it’s probably around the 50th flight I’ve taken this year. I haven’t kept track. For the first time, this statistic almost shames me. Of late, I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching about my carbon footprint, my consumption patterns, how I can be a better human being by treating the planet better. Is it irresponsible to travel this much? Many of us who consider ourselves travellers, for whom travel is food for the soul, are feeling conflicted. Should we stop air travel altogether? Can we…

carrying capacity crunch

Tourism is a mega industry that employs millions and adds significantly to the wealth of nations. In 2018, it contributed US$8.8 trillion (around 10.4 percent) to the global GDP, both directly and indirectly. One of the fastest-growing sectors in India, it is also vital for the country’s economy, having added around 17,84,000 crore (9.2 percent of the GDP) to its coffers last year. However, growth of the tourism industry comes with increasing concerns about its environmental and ecological impacts. With rising pollution, generation of waste, depletion of resources and degradation at tourist hotspots, the sector has a worryingly significant ecological footprint that’s rapidly worsening. It is also a major cause of global warming: if the tourism industry were a country, it would be the third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases, after the…

q&a in conversation with ma jun

Ma Jun has spent over a decade getting the Chinese suppliers to the world’s biggest tech companies—including Apple—to clean up their act. Blue Map, the smartphone app set up by his Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs (IPE)—gives real-time data on polluters and tells millions of users exactly what protective breathing gear to wear before leaving home. He has also played an integral role in the Chinese government stepping up its monitoring of pollution. A recipient of the Goldman Environmental Prize, Ma Jun set up IPE in 2006, with three people poring over government records to map out China’s first online pollution database. Today, the team of 40 has reported 1.5 million environmental violations. What is the biggest recent change on the environmental front in China? My book China’s Water Crisis was…

THOU SHALL BE A BETTER TOURIST With great travel comes great responsibility. Shraddha Chowdhury lists out the 10 commandments of a conscientious tourist 1 THOU SHALL BE KIND TO THE ENVIRONMENT It’s one thing to admire the blue of the ocean and another entirely to litter in the same waters. Don’t add to the pile of garbage at the street corner or chuck empty packets of chips or plastic cups out the window of your car during a road trip. Also, don’t partake in activities that aren’t eco-friendly, like fireworks, campfires in heavily wooded areas, or posing for photos atop a tree trunk that’s clearly marked with a “stay away” sign. You can pick tour operators that organise carbon-offset adventures. 2 THOU SHALL SAY NO TO PLASTIC Research has warned that by 2050, there could…
