"… even with the original, higher baseline, offsets would make up less than 1% of airlines' 2019 operating costs by 2035.
Prices that low mean the scheme offers little incentive to lower emissions."

"A @dw_environment@twitter.com analysis based on data by @TheICCT@twitter.com shows that projected growth in demand and fuel efficiency means that airlines are unlikely to buy any offsets for the next 5 years, even if the industry recovers faster than it expects."

17 of the 20 busiest air routes in Europe are less than 700km - almost all of these journeys could be shifted to rail. ✈️➡️🚆

Time for the EU & member states to make it happen! germanwatch.org/en/19680

Happy ! 🐧

It's and science reckons that Emperor penguins might not have any place to live in a world 2°C warmer.

Worse, we are in the 6th mass extinction of species and loosing ~200 species every day. Reducing consumption in the global North is key to any solution.

What's your "favourite" aviation greenwashing strategy?

Once again, the state is stepping in to help an airline that has laid off staff in the crisis. Easyjet gets a 1.87 billion $ loan, backed by the UK.

What we need now is a just permanent reduction of air traffic, not keeping airlines alive at any price!
