    Apparently more people here agree than disagree.

    I think owning a small plane is fine. I’m not officially against owning a larger plane… Idk…

    Aviation makes up about 2% of global CO2 emissions which is a lot but also not a lot. It’s not the smaller planes, it’s all of the passenger and cargo jets (mostly).

      Thank you! While reducing CO2 is important, harping on private planes isn’t going to make a change.

        That’s like saying one person taking their bike to work instead of their car won’t do anything, as if their car doesn’t burn gas, as if they don’t give money to oil companies for that gas.

        The same idea with private jets. No matter how small a positive change might be in the grand scope of things, it’s still a worthwhile change. That’s really the one thing that has to happen so we all don’t die; everyone making pro-environmental life choices that will eventually carry over into industry when that collective pressure accumulates, forcing companies that rely on income from those people to change their practice and policy.

          We as in you and me? Try our best to reduce waste, things that contribute to carbon emission, and plant some crops that put nutrients back in the soil. Donate some money to charities and institutions that further environments science research.

          We as a country and international effort? Long term policy changes like carbon taxes. The 1%s and politically well connected finally being personally inconvinenced by climate change. About when the sea water rises to destroy their private villas and beach getaways is when some real progress will start to get made. 3rd world countries will hopefully transition from burning fossil fuel to cleaner energy
