Increasing bio-fuel production increases the amount of carbon taken out of the atmosphere when the feed stock is grown. Increasing coal/oil production doesn't do that; nobody's pumping CO2 into the ground to make more coal or petroleum. (That said, I'm not a big fan of bio-fuels; they take a lot of energy and land to produce.)
Jet fuel is a fossil fuel.
Ha, the problem is that plants survive on Carbon dioxide. Not sure what that climate goat was trying say...
My airline won’t even wash its airplanes. One of the largest cargo airline in business. That’d be a good start.
Very cool to see this. I never understood why things that travel through air, where drag becomes the dominant force to push against, didn't adopt the aerodynamic trick of the dimples on the golf-ball disturbing the boundary layer!
That's right. Blame it all on the plants. But couldn't the same be said about fossil fuels?
