Dear Mr Walsh,
- The industry is committed to improving fuel efficiency of new planes by 50% by 2020.
- The industry is committed to getting emissions down to 2000 levels by 2050 despite a trebling of air passengers.
- Aviation emissions are doubling every 17 years
- Global Emissions are doubling every 21 years
- Atmospheric CO2 is increasing more rapidly than the worst case scenario of the IPCC report.
