Abstract


Abstract: The paper presents the forms of tourist transport with a major effect on global warming and, implicitly, on sustainable development. Tourism is largely affected by the climatic change; however, at the same time, it has a significant contribution to the worldwide emission of greenhouse effect gases. Between tourism and transport, particularly air transport, there is a close connection, especially at the international level. More than 40% of international tourists travel by air; almost all these people travel for business purposes or for pleasure. It was ascertained that road and air transport have a major influence on the climatic change and, implicitly, on sustainable development, which imposes the taking of actions to prevent negative effects on the environment.
