With modern fission based power plants until fusion based is available we wouldn’t have to worry about airlines contribution to CO2 release. Whatever Airbus or anyone else does it won’t begin to offset the new coal and oil fired power plants built in China or India in the last six months…

But no, nukes bad… says the environmental movement.

I have been amazed by the push by the environmental movement to breach the hydroelectric dams on the Snake River. (And opposition to any new hydroelectric dams, anywhere.) The free range salmon on the Snake say carbon free dams are bad.

That reminds me, I think I will have salmon for dinner, tonight.

And SAF. GMAFB. It’s like the medieval church selling indulgences. It’s OK to sin if you pay a fee.
