If you thought the governments were going to turn their backs on AGW hysteria as more and more evidence comes out that it’s false, think again.
The European Union on Saturday published a list of nearly 4,000 airlines that it says should reduce their impact on the environment from 2012 or face being banned from European airports.
Pollution from aircraft emissions currently represent three percent of European emissions.
The EU adopted the policy in January despite opposition from the majority of International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) member countries and companies belonging to the International Air Transport Association (IATA). A new European law is due to come into force soon.
Under the new law, from January 1, 2012 all airlines — both European and non-European — operating within Europe would have to limit CO2 emissions or face penalties.
In spite of the fact that there is no proof CO2 causes any climate change and the public is turning against the whole discussion, the bureaucrats are going ahead with the law. This is what you get when you have statists running things. They don’t care about the people. They care about the money they can make pushing this insanity on us. And the effect it will have on our cost of living will be profound. Say good by to those cheap flights to Europe.
