I recently read some news about the development of electric planes. And I thought “mmh, maybe I should be more concerned about the impact of aviation on global warming and stuff like that…”. So I checked a few statistics and I was impressed about how aviation could impact the environment.
To make it simple, planes could be responsible for around 3.5% of the climate change nowadays, and scientists predict an impact of 15% in 2050, for the worst scenario (because of the continual increase of travel and fret).
I did some research to see if a topic about it has already been created and I didn’t find anything. So tell me, what is your thoughts about air traffic pollution, here’s a little survey you can do (be honest, Zuckerberg already knows everything about you, so, no need to lie). Feel free to share your opinion too if you want !
- I really don’t care !
- I already thought about it, but I rather don’t care
- I think about it, sometimes, but guess I can’t do anything to change it
- I think about it every time I fly and I feel bad
- I feel concerned and try not to travel by plane
- I protest everyday about it !
In the end, I redirect people who are interested in increasing their knowledge about this topic to the English Wikipedia article which is pretty complete and full of sources, so I think it’s a great place to start reading.
