Yeah, call me crazy but there is just no way all of that air traffic isn't doing ..something.
I remember reading an article a while back about environmental pollutants, what shocked me was the prevalence of trace amounts of jet fuel in
everything, even breast milk. Now I can wee why.
After the air strikes of 9/11, all aircraft were required to land at the nearest airport. This gave meteorologists the one chance to see what effect
all those contrails had on global weather patterns. All the light reflected from those contrails, disruptions to cloud patterns, amounted to 1.5% of
the total amount received from the Sun. That was enough to cool down the climate by a corresponding amount.
I don't know where that is sourced from.
The study I saw only found that there was a small increase in difference between the hottest part of eth day and het coldest part of the night - what
is called the "diurnal range" - see here
And it has since been disputed that it was contrails that made the difference - eg
- so whether contrails have any significant effect is still under
