New study reveals global air transport contributes 3.5 percent to global warming

Global air transport accounts for 3.5 percent of anthropogenic climate warming. It is also apparent that only one third of aviation’s climate impact is due to carbon dioxide emissions and two thirds to non-carbon-dioxide effects, with contrails and the resulting cirrus clouds being the most significant factor. These are the findings of a comprehensive international … Continue reading New study reveals global air transport contributes 3.5 percent to global warming

Discussions on Sustainable Aviation Take Place in Abu Dhabi

Between 2013 and 2018 the number of air travellers increased by 38 per cent, and the International Air Transport Authority (IATA) expects annual passenger numbers to double to 8.2 billion by 2037. While this growth could support up to 100 million jobs over the next 20 years, it will also increase aviation carbon emissions. Finding … Continue reading Discussions on Sustainable Aviation Take Place in Abu Dhabi
