There is a lot of pollution caused by tourism and it is said that the take off of one jumbo jet uses as much oxygen as that produced by the whole Fontableu forest in a day add to this the huge amount of pollution caused by cruise ships and tourism becomes a significant

factor in the fight against climate change. People should tour closer to home or perhaps be issued with a permit to do a tour every 4 years or so.
