    I often wonder about this very thing, and have been ruminating over writing an article too… I don’t think you can come to any other conclusion but that it is indeed selfish. The question is whether that selfishness is acceptable, and you’re right: to some extent the real question is whether you can live with the guilt. I WANT to travel, and I find all sorts of justifications and rationalizations for why it’s okay. But that’s all they are: just ways to make me feel better. What’s called “sustainable travel” still usually involves a plane trip, but I suppose it’s better than non-sustainable. I don’t have an answer for you other than not traveling. I can only say I understand the question.
