Great Travel Reset: UK Green Party pushes ‘frequent flyer levies’ to reduce your ‘aerial carbon footprint’ – ‘The freedom to fly at will is an incredible privilege’ – ‘Too much air travel is taking place’

Nick Bowett – GreenWorld.org – Jan 2023: We need to think about cutting carbon equivalent emissions in every sector, including those that are difficult to decarbonise – such as aviation – in a culturally sensitive way. Introducing a frequent flyer levy would force frequent fliers to think more about their aerial carbon footprint and give them a financial incentive to lower it. …

Instead of hiking the price of all flights a fairer way to counter the burgeoning demand for air travel is to impose a frequent flyer levy. Under well detailed Green Party proposals, this would allow people to take one return flight a year, with no extra levy, so people could go on annual holidays and visit any family they may have abroad. A frequent flyer levy will make people consider if the trip they want to make is necessary and incentivise them to consider taking less carbon intensive forms of transport. … The freedom to fly at will to almost any country in the world – in hours – is an incredible privilege which is now largely overlooked as travelling far afield has become so commonplace, but unfortunately, aviation is notoriously difficult to decarbonise. …

Too much air travel is taking place which is warming our planet, hence damaging ecosystems which we rely on for food, and so forth. More British people travel abroad each year than any other nationality, so it is entirely fitting for the UK to show leadership on tackling this aspect of the climate emergency. 

POLITICO: ‘Road rage’ – EU’s plan to ban gas cars may be key to ‘stunning results from European’ – ‘People don’t like you messing with their cars’

The monster called ‘climate change turbulence’ is an imaginary phantom

https://www.cfact.org/2024/06/01/the-monster-called-climate-change-turbulence-is-an-imaginary-phantom/ By Joanne Nova At any moment there are something like 10,000 boxes cruising in the air that know when they strike turbulence. Rumors are that these are even staffed with sentient beings. If Climate Change was making turbulence worse, you’d think pilots would have noticed? But instead of reporting what pilots said, which is […]

Watch: Morano on Fox on Sec. Pete’s claim that airline turbulence is linked to ‘climate change’ – ‘This is unscientific claptrap’

.

Fox Business – The Bottom Line – Broadcast May 28, 2024

Marc Morano: What Secretary Pete is doing here is continuing this absurd tradition at the Department of Transportation during the Obama administration. They did a study saying that fatal car crashes were rising due to climate change or they’re worried climate change is going to impact that. What he’s saying about airline turbulence is insane. He quoted some 15% rise in turbulence, the only data the only study that anyone can claim is one study looking at 20 years, and it was based on climate models of one spot and the North Atlantic. The actual data from 30 years of airline turbulence clearly shows that even though flights of increased number of passengers have increased, there’s been no change in the reported actual physical reports of turbulence. So they’re using a computer model to try to scare people claiming that they’re up. This is the height of absurdity.

I’m surprised he didn’t blame the failure of the EV charging stations on climate change, but why not? … This is just unscientific claptrap that Secretary Pete is talking about airlines linking it to climate change with turbulence.
