Airline Emissions: Even Worse Than You Think


blog.wired.com

Forget everything you've heard about airlines and CO2 emissions. The news is much worse than anyone thought.

A recently disclosed report finds that airlines are spewing 20 percent more carbon dioxide into the environment than previously estimated and the amount could hit 1.5 billion tons a year by 2025. That's far more than even the worst-case predictions laid out by the International Panel on Climate Change.

If you're looking to put that number in perspective, the European Union currently emits 3.1 billion tons of CO2 annually. Yup, that's the entire 27-nation, 457 million person EU.

If they got it wrong by so much you really have to wonder how accurate they are now.
Doubt their expertise, perhaps. Query their biases. Ponder upon what they're not considering.
Interesting how the revisions always keep going in one direction.
Their credibility takes a hit.
