On the Horizon of Green Air Travel

The move to green up the airline industry is heating up. The recent gas prices have been fueling the fire and environmentalists are fanning the flames. Rising fuel prices and looming airline emission standards are forcing an industry known for it’s high emissions and low profits to start cleaning up their act. Currently they are working on lighter more fuel efficient planes, bio-fuel planes, and more efficient air traffic controlling that won’t leave planes circling for so long. Unfortunately these changes will take time and many argue that because they are motivated by money and not a concern for the environment their commitment to reducing emissions is not sustainable. Fear not, there are some out there that are truly concerned with the future of flight and our planet and they are doing some interesting work (actually you probably should fear some of these ideas)…
