The 'post 80's' generation is about to start running families and business's.

Environmental responsibility is becoming an increasingly important consideration when selecting a particular service provider.

Bransons proposal will enable a company's environmental responsibility to be a factor in this selection process.

I think it's a great idea.

I too! Why should just us little guys have to be responsible for the environment. The big consumers of fuel should have to annie up too!

And if it costs too much, then maybe countries will start producing their own products again instead of importing from thousands of miles away (china).

Perhaps that's the answer, sink all the gas guzzling ships, ground all the planes, go back to clipper ships.

I always got pissed off when I travelled from NY to Jakarta and it took less than 20 hours. No adventure there. I wanted those trips to take weeks! I wanted a pith helmet, go around the Horn, ride an elephant (for real, not just for the picture). That's why I sail.
