Still beating that ‘climate change’ horse

Under pressure from frequent flyers alarmed over climate change, the airline industry says it is “hellbent” on reducing emissions—but the technology needed to drastically reduce its carbon footprint is still out of reach.

    Here in the UK our batshit crazy government has just announced that we are going 100% zero CO2 emissions by 2050. All heating and transport will be electric and powered by solar panels and windmills.

      Did anyone ask how the majority of powerplants make electricity? Bet they didn’t.

      Don’t feel like the Lone Ranger, these dumbasses are widely available in all countries, not just yours.

    • FaCubeItches says:

      Yeah, have fun with that.

    Park ’em. Make it against the law for anyone to fly. That includes the rich elite and their private jets. No exceptions. None. Everyone gets treated the same.
    Sure, that’ll happen.

    If they’re so “alarmed”, they can walk.

    • bogsidebunny says:

      Walking still produces C02 from exhaling. I think once born people should be confined to their abode for life. Hell we got computers, the internet, Amazon, dildos and fleshlights now so there’s absolutely no need to venture out to cause polution

    Let me take a shot at re-writing that for you. “Under pressure from clueless, whiny idiots who enthusiastically jump on the Leftist Bandwagon Issue of the Moment the airline industry is frantically attempting to virtue signal its way out of what it perceives as a public relations jam by holding out hope for rainbow colored bunnies and flying unicorns, whilst quietly saying to themselves that those freakin’ snowflakes will never stop flying no matter how many petroleum atoms we burn or how much carbon we spew.”

    • FaCubeItches says:

      Any truly “serious” environmentalist would simply kill themselves – they can be composted, and they will not generate any further carbon footprint, consume no further resources, etc.

    There is not a set of cajones in the whole bunch. He turned crazy, but at least Howard Hughes knew enough he would tell them “STFU, you don’t know what you’re talking about.”

    • Rick says:

      UNLV has the transcripts of Hughes’ testimony before Congress. Hughes’ dismissive tone of Congress gives hope for the common man. Ralph Brewster was an asshole. He was played brilliantly by another asshole in that DeCaprio movie. It’s like Alan Alda (spit) was born for that role.

    Gotta save that glacier…..

    What’ll these idiots do when it becomes real apparent that we’re heading cooler, not warmer?

    The commie globalists at the top who instigate this moronic BS are not going to “obey” any of their stupid regulations. The regs are to keep the peasantry in control. And the people living in the EU have gone head over heels to live by the no CO2 lies.
    The entire maritime industry has been spending billions of dollars and euros on exhaust scrubbers, new Tier 4 engines. Norway has a zero CO2 emission reg for any ships or boats in their fiords. All this unneeded cost has to be covered by someone. And that someone is every one of us who buys anything.

    In CA “ANY” diesel truck HAS to pass the CO2 law. If old Pete has had earthmoving equipment since 1985 and thinks he can run them in CA, he is fined out of business. Anything that burns diesel has to be Tier 4. The EPA is folded into this CO2 madness. So is NOAA and NASA.

    I believe the only group of people in the world who are still fighting this CO2 Bull shit are the right-wing Americans. And the globalists want us dead.
