I dont see why it would be a bad thing? If it works ... maybe in about 100 years we'll see it's affect.
EPA did what it was ordered by the court to do. Would you prefer they disregard the court order?
From the article:
"But the requirement is expected to apply only to new aircraft designs certified from 2020, leaving most of the world's existing fleets unaffected for years to come"
And so the price of airline tickets shouldn't increase for another 6 years!
Designs ... so after another 5 years for production and implementation ... maybe 2025! ... wait sorry I forgot we were talking about Airlines... -__-
Let's see, first we make an announcement about a program that will make a correction to a major problem that we can't quantify, then we say that the parameters of said program haven't been finalized, then we say that we don't won't take effect for years and then take years to see the effect of said program and to top it off the only thing we are sure of is that it will cost a lot of money.
Oh yea and when or what was the last government program that either worked or cost what it was supposed to?
The arguments against doing this seem unbelievably similar to the ones we heard when fuel economy standards were set for cars some 40 or so years ago, only it's a different generation making them
The list goes on and on
The EPA has a great track record from reformulated gasoline that cost us more to regulation of diesel fuel, remember when it cost less than regular gas? It will either bankrupt the airlines as they are forced to replace aircraft in 5 years or cost so much to fly that nobody can afford it. Oh and those award tickets with low taxes. Just wait until they add the new EPA mandated fuel surcharges or whatever they will call it.
OMNI has arrived on MP with the very protagonists as the last time (or the one before) .. oh well... sure beats having to talk about mundane topics like miles/points/travelling doesn't?
Personally I get pretty sick of the political crap some insist and insist and insist on inserting here.
"Aviation accounted for 11 percent of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions from the transportation sector in 2013, and nearly 30 percent of global aircraft emissions in 2010, the latest year with complete global emissions data."
Wait so aviation accounted for 30 percent of aircraft emissions? Come again? What made up the rest of aircraft emissions?
