Probably air travel (and certainly military aviation) should be outlawed some time ago.

Meanwhile, as Destroyers of the Earth go, it's likely that Quaker grannies en route to visit grandchildren or to see the wonders of Eygpt or to bring 501(c)(3) nonprofit culture to the heathen really aren't top contenders (much as it seems that way when one's worship group spends more time in the air than worshipping.) It is a peculiarly ironic state of affairs, however.
