Greenpeace Is Challenging the E.U. to Ban Short Flights and Shift to Trains

Environmental group Greenpeace called on the European Union to ban short flights on routes where a train journey under six hours was available, in a sign of growing pressure on governments to take bolder steps to avert climate disaster.
