IT people don't care about the environment apparently, at least according to the annual survey by the Chartered Management Institute. Only 12 percent of managers in the sector intend to offset the carbon footprint created by long-haul flights, apparently. And we like long haul flights to Canada our second favourite summer holiday spot, it says in the press release. Along with the Greek islands. And we will carry on flying to, at lease until the ozone layer coughs its last, because only 10 percent of us claim to have any intention of cutting back on the number of flights we take. But where we are going to fit in all these flights is a moot point since 63 percent said they will not use their full holiday entitlement this year. Now come on, boys and girls, who is trying to kid who here?
