Why do people go shopping during international trips?

2020-12-16T15:08:41+00:00

For many international travellers, buying a luxury handbag is not something uncommon: perhaps just as common as buying a T-shirt at Target. While the appeal of luxury goods is obvious – the leather is soft; the logo is flashy – the price tag can be off-putting. Unless you have a good job with a high salary, buying luxury consumer goods can create a financial burden. Yet studies have revealed that humans do not always act rationally. Many consumers who buy luxury goods are not in a financial position to be able to afford luxury goods. The proof of this may be [...]

Global Travel and Global Warming: We Only Have One Planet

2020-10-25T09:07:59+00:00

Scientists and economists are beginning to consider the serious economic and environmental consequences if we fail to reduce global carbon emissions quickly. The most expensive thing we can do is nothing. The cost of global warming: damage to property and infrastructure is real. Sea-level rises, floods, droughts, wildfires, and extreme storms require expensive repairs of essential infrastructure such as homes, roads, bridges, railroad tracks, airport runways, power lines, dams, levees, and seawalls. Disruptions in daily life related to climate change can lead to loss of work and school days and can harm trade, transportation, agriculture, fisheries, energy production, and tourism. Heavy [...]

Ecotourism and the Environment: Observations and Insights

2020-10-22T03:29:19+00:00

A cow on overage releases between 70 and 120 kg of Methane per year. Methane is a greenhouse gas like carbon dioxide (CO2). But the negative effect on the climate of Methane is 23 times higher than the effect of CO2. Therefore, the release of about 100 kg Methane per year for each cow is equivalent to about 2,300 kg of CO2 per year.  Let's compare this value of 2,300 kg of CO2: the same amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) is created by using 1,000 liters of petrol. In a car using 8 liters of petrol per 100 km, you could [...]

Populations are growing and cities are booming – but could we soon see skyscrapers turned into centers for crop production? From Chicago warehouses to the south pole growth chamber in Antarctica, the concept of growing food indoors is catching on. Plant scientist Dr Erik Murchie, from the University of Nottingham, reveals how agriculture could be turned on its head. What is vertical farming? It's vertical because you are trying to grow more crops on a smaller land area and this usually means going upwards into buildings. It normally means that, instead of having a single layer of crops over a large land [...]
