Your Fault: ‘Climate Change’ Means Longer Flights And Fewer Passengers

If only you had a salad instead of that cheeseburger for lunch the other day, this wouldn’t be a maybe possibly it could totally happen in the future issue

Climate change means longer take-offs and fewer passengers per aeroplane – new study

The connection between your next flight and climate change is likely clear in your head. More aeroplanes emitting greenhouse gases means more global warming. Simple enough, but there’s an opposite side that you probably hadn’t thought of.

As the local climates at airports around the world have changed in the past few decades, the conditions that pilots have relied on in order to take off safely have changed too. Our new research suggests that higher temperatures and weaker winds are making take-off more difficult. In the long run, this means that airlines are delivering fewer passengers and cargo for the same amount of fuel.

Suggests? So, they really do no know. As far as winds, I thought the Cult of Climastrology was saying that winds would be stronger with ‘climate change”. No?

But climate change isn’t just about temperature – winds are slowing down and changing direction around the world too. This is a problem for airport runways that were built many years ago to align with the prevailing winds at the time.

Research has predicted that take-off distances will get longer as the climate warms. This is because higher temperatures reduce air density, which the wings and engines need to get airborne. With reduced headwinds, aeroplanes also need to generate more groundspeed just to get into the air. Once they’re up there, they’re subject to in-flight turbulence, which is getting worse due to climate change increasing the energy in jet stream winds.

Predicted. Uh huh. And since runways are supposedly too short for future doom

That could mean that airlines must reduce the numbers of passengers they carry on flights, or search for ways to lengthen their runways. In some extreme cases, it could become impossible for some aeroplanes to use some airports altogether. This is another reminder of how rapidly and extensively human actions are transforming the world around us, and how ill equipped we are to deal with the consequences.

They always have some sort of doom to push, eh? Yet Warmists still take fossil fueled flights.

    TEACH, TEACH, TEACH…

    The scientists are trying to save your life by adjusting to climate change. You should be grateful! Big deal. So planes need longer runways or fewer passengers to safely take off because of the warming Earth. These are the sort of behavioral changes you should be applauding. We’ll all need to make these adjustments as the Earth continues to warm.

    Should everyone just put their collective heads in the sand?

    Oh yay, another ‘it’s going to be horrible’ prediction from the same idiots who couldn’t accurately predict that a bowling ball would hit the ground if they dropped it.

    “These scientists are trying to save your life…”. Gee, didn’t know our lives were in danger due to an allegedly small temp increase. Now, if they only had proof of that.,,We were told more tornadoes, more hurricanes, etc., but now we’re told the winds are lighter at the surface? Got it

    • Nighthawk says:

      We have had 30-40 years of predictions of a bunch of horrible things that are supposed to have happened by now and not one has. In fact, this naturally occurring climate change has been nothing but good for life on this planet.

      • Kye says:

        Bingo! Nighthawk, they keep calling us “deniers” yet it is they who have made DOCUMENTED PREDICTIONS about climate change going back at least to the first Earth Day in 1970 and absolutely ZERO have come true.

        You know what they call a Prophet who is wrong ONCE? A liar!

        They’re liars and are so closed minded and so brainwashed they can’t admit it.

        Trump 2020 Stop the global warming lies we have real work to do.

    ‘Lighter winds, stronger winds…” Reminds me of this settled science-CO2 hits every place harder than any other place!

    I heard Boeing is working on a new AGW airplane.

    It consists of 300 bicycle pedals attached to 8 propellors and the passengers have to pedal all the way to their destination or CRASH.

    Its called the SAINT GRETA EXPRESS!
