Our recent LinkedIn poll on green aviation reflected some willingness to invest in green flights. However, a broader group was looking for affordable options and there is a notable population that remained skeptical, underscoring the importance of addressing concerns and providing information to build confidence in sustainable initiatives for air travel.
To meet the need for more data when forming an opinion, we created a video summarizing key indicators from the State of the Climate report, the annual international review based on input from more than 570 scientists from over 60 countries, led by scientists at NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) and recently published by the American Meteorological Society (AMS) Bulletin.
Climate indicators for 2022 are not very positive, with greenhouse gas concentrations, global sea level and ocean heat content reaching record highs. However, the SESAR 3 JU-funded E-CONTRAIL project has an optimistic view of the future possibilities that our research addresses to build aviation that helps mitigate climate change.
