THE DOROTHY DILEMMA
Home and Away in the Jet Age

By Cedric Pulford

Flying is good for people but bad for the planet – it’s the dilemma at the heart of this engrossing study of aviation’s soaraway growth. With emerging nations like China, India and Brazil increasingly demanding the travel privileges of the West, and the aviation lobby in full battle mode, this most polluting form of travel is all set to undermine the world’s efforts to combat climate change. The Dorothy Dilemma also explores topical concerns about flying like noise, safety and the spread of drones. 

Timid politicians hide behind pious hopes for high tech solutions, and dare not confront the reality that we are simply flying too much. Dorothy Gale famously travelled to the land of Oz only to discover that there’s no place like home. In The Dorothy Dilemma, veteran journalist and author Cedric Pulford shows how the little girl from Kansas may have a lesson for us all.

The Dorothy Dilemma was published in 2016. Because Ituri has ceased publishing books, the full text is made available here as a free download for personal use. All commercial uses of the book in whole or part continue to need the publisher’s advance approval (contact: ituribooks@yahoo.co.uk)
