There's a wider credibility problem with climate change, as for political purposes, things get conflated to advance agendas.
Climate has never been static, so the term "climate change" is actually a useless one. "Man made" climate change makes more sense but the context of the global cooling scares of the 70s and Al Gore's predictions of doom which failed to come to pass means there's a credibility problem regardless of your pHD status.
The latest "eco-loon" idea is that the UK should pay more in tax and repartations as the industrial revolution began here and we should own the consequences, though only the bad ones.
We need to look at the biggest problems and drivers of pollution (i.e. China and the developing world) and tackle that filthy and growing problem head on. How much of the Amazon is being deforested every day? Let's dial that back. Let's stop dumping rubbish in rivers full stop. All brilliant green ideas I support.
EcoLoons, IMHO,have on mantra, travel less and pay more tax, and that ignore that war and devastation happens on the whole much less as we all travel more and get to know each other.
Common and affordable air travel is one of THE best ways of keeping the peace, inward investment demands frequent connectivity in a competitive market.
Details matter, so when you want to "reduce Carbon", I really hope you mean "reduce CO2", and I also hope you realise that we need CO2 in the atmosphere.
Also remember that one perfectly natural volcanic eruption will dwarf the totality of humanities attempts to reduce CO2.https://www.scientificamerican.com/arti ... or-humans/
The Green agenda, and I mean the left wing political agenda in the UK, is all about control and taxing hard working families more. Greta Thunberg has proved to me this is all getting a bit religious in it's tone, all very Joan of Arc. I don't actually think LHR R3 will happen, the Environmenalists will break the ;aw until the courts eventually back them as the zeitgeist is shaped by the current "climate emergency" in a political discourse dominated by zealots.
Anyhoo back to Delta UK, er I mean Virgin Atlantic
