Air Pollution: Air companies are also responsible for climate changing

Escrito el 17 Enero 2007 por Antonio López de Avila en Transporte Aéreo

Air Pollution, this topic is on newspapers almost everyday in the last weeks: “Air companies are also responsible for climate changing”. Is it new? Not at all.

The 3 days closing of the USA air space after September 11th, showed how aircraft emmissions have an important role in climate changing. From midday September 11 to midday September 14, the days had become warmer and the nights cooler, with the overall range greater by about two degrees Fahrenheit (see The Contrail Effect).

But, not flying is a valid answer? or more taxes? Of course, not.

I think aerospace companies (like Airbus and Boeing) should invest more in I+D related to environment (less emmissions, less noise, etc.) and do people know about its efforts as the car manufacturers have being doing since the 80s.

Innovation, not restrictions, I think that’s the right answer. What do you think? Are more taxes the right answer?

i agree with more investment in I+D,but i also think that regulations for the long term will help to get to a ´´cleaner´´sky.Lets take the example of some countries of europe like france that do not allow any more some models of planes like the 734 200 for the huge noise they make with their old engines.If we can promote something like this for the long term it will add some help to the new jets generation.
Excellent blog!!!
