IATA turns warmist

IATA, the International Air Transport Association, a global airline trade organisation, has signed up to the full "CO2-causes-global-warming" script by announcing that it wants to reduce emissions during the landing phase of an aircraft's flight in order to "combat climate change":
In all, airlines are hoping to save 500,000 metric tons of carbon gas this way each year, said IATA's head of infrastructure Guenther Matschnigg.

The measure - the first continent-wide plan of its kind - is part of the airline industry's effort to combat climate change, IATA said.

500,000 metric tons is about 2 thousandths of one percent of global emissions. Let's hope it doesn't compromise safety.

  • Exactly how much less fuel do you need to burn to save this much in emissions, I wonder. Surely it would be too cynical to suggest that the IATA members want to spend less on fuel, but by claiming to be about emissions they know they can browbeat the FAA into changing the rules for them...
