We are talking about space tourism, which an increasing number of billionaires are fond of. In private spaceships, these people either fly into space themselves, or send tourist teams there. And recently there have been more such flights.
The problem is that one spaceship flight generates 75 tons of carbon, whereas all of humanity creates such a carbon footprint in a year.

So far, climate policies such as carbon taxes have often had a disproportionate impact on low- and middle-income groups, ”the report said.
