Experts pin down aviation’s true climate impact

Airline contrails warm the planet twice as much as aircraft CO2 emissions, according to a new EU study. The research from leading scientists finds non-CO2 emissions, such as nitrogen oxides, water vapour, soot and black carbon, from jet engines were responsible for two-thirds of aviation’s climate impact in 2018. T&E and over 30 other NGOs said it shows the need for non-CO2 emissions to finally be addressed.
