Stop global warming – travel by train

Eurostar An excellent collection of train travel related information on Seat61 web site (thanks to Nick Burch for the link). Virtually all countries and rail companies are described. Timetables, fares, best routes and a lot of travel tips are available.

Just thinking about air travel, tightened security, requests to come to the airport at least 3 hours in advance, and inter-terminal transfer hell in Heathrow or JFK makes me wonder – why don’t all companies update their travel policies to include trains & ferries – London to Helsinki would be a perfect example how an updated policies can be used 😉
It all reminded me of the deluxe tours on a private train from Moscow to Vladivostok organized by GW Travel/The Trans-Siberian Express Company. Takes 2 weeks and can cost up to 10.000€, but what an experience!

  4. The study found that global warming since 1985 has been caused neither by an increase in solar radiation nor by a decrease in the flux of galactic cosmic rays. Some researchers had also suggested that the latter might influence global warming because the rays trigger cloud formation. I am write a blog which gave complete information about Global Warming.
