The challenges of global climate change are justifiably being given even more scrutiny in recent political, social and economic discussions. The global tourism industry is both responsible for and affected by climate change – an active discussion about climate change is therefore essential. Which tourism regions are especially affected by climate change? How should transportation systems be enhanced, so that a climate-friendly transport of tourists can take place? What needs to take place in the hotel industry so that, for example, customer comfort and energy efficiency are no longer mutually exclusive?
