Air traffic growth set to outpace carbon reduction efforts

8 agosto 2014

Carbon reduction efforts in the airline industry will be outweighed by growth in air-traffic, even if the most contentious mitigation measures are implemented, according to new research. Even if proposed mitigation measures are agreed upon and put into place, air traffic growth-rates are likely to out-pace emission reductions, unless demand is substantially reduced. «There is little doubt that increasing demand for air travel will continue for the foreseeable future,» says a co-author and travel expert.
