  •  So what's your solution for reducing (0+ / 0-)

    GHG omissions from air travel?  Because it seems like it involves doing absolutely nothing.  Again, do you have a single fucking solution to the huge amounts of GHGs released from air travel or are you just going to continue on with your bullshit about religion?

    There revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

    •  Inability to think about your assumptions is (0+ / 0-)

      a hallmark of religion.

      That is what we are seeing here.

      To AoT, the need to reduce GHG emissions from air travel is a postulate, not a conclusion, and since it is faith based he is not able to logically analyze whether or not it is correct.

      In actual fact, we need to reduce total GHG emissions in whatever way is most efficient.  I am not aware of any evidence that reducing air travel is a cost efficient way of reducing total GHG emissions.

      •  That's a long winded way of saying that you have (0+ / 0-)

        absolutely no plan for reducing GHG emissions from air travel.

        •  Thank you for proving my point (0+ / 0-)

          I suggest you spend your time worshiping at the Church of Gaiea. We're the reality based community.

          •  If you aren't worried about GHG emissions (0+ / 0-)

            from air travel then you are not in fact part of any reality based community.  Thank you for trolling.  And good job with the bullshit accusation of me being a part of some religion.

            •  Note the walk back (0+ / 0-)

              Suddenly issue is whether or not we should be worried about GHG, not whether or not we must have a plan to reduce them.

              Actually, I'm not nearly as worried about aviation related GHG as I am about those from road transport.

              See http://ec.europa.eu/... pages 4 and 9.  Air transport produces about 1/6 as much GHG as road transport and all transportation together produces only 2/3 as much GHG as energy production and about as much as industrial operations.

              So why are you so fixated on air travel?

              And good job with the bullshit accusation of me being a part of some religion.
              Well, you seem to have this religious fixation on air travel GHG that is not related to any logic or evidence and not susceptible to fact based analysis.  

              If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...
