Love you brother, thank you for documenting this so well.
On August 11th, 2015 the EPA held a public hearing on “Emissions from Aircraft Cause or Contribute to Air Pollution that May Reasonably Be Anticipated to Endanger Public Health and Welfare“.
In typical Establishment fashion, the EPA’s proposed ruling only focuses on six greenhouse gasses emitted by airplanes: CO2, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and sulfur hexafluoride. This is blatant institutionalized ignorance at its worst: airplanes produce a wide variety of pollutants, not just six greenhouse gasses. Several of these pollutants — like lead, aluminum, and barium — pose a much more direct threat to public health and welfare than non-toxic substances like CO2.
The EPA’s proposed ruling cites IPCC reports as justification for ignoring the impacts of aviation induced cloud cover, metallic particulates released by airplanes, high altitude water vapor emitted by airplanes, and other significant factors affecting planetary and human health.
Fortunately, several prominent pro-science…
