Industry

Climate change has really come to the fore in the last year or two. The aviation industry has responded with a concerted campaign of deception and mis-information, claiming that somehow evermore flying is compatible with the UK’s (and other countries’) “carbon neutral” target. It isn’t!

The latest piece of ‘greenwash’ is from Easyjet who will plant a few trees if passengers pay. And Heathrow Airport will help to restore a peat bog. But these so-called ‘offsets’ do not and cannot undo the climate impacts of  flying.

These false claims are exposed in the article here. It is written by an academic – James Dyke at the University of Exeter. This is significant because academics are required to tell the truth – unlike the aviation industry or politicians.
