Your Fault: People Hurt, One Dies From Air Turbulence

I told you to buy a bike and give up your fossil fueled vehicle, move to a tiny home in a big city, and give up meat, but, no, you wanted to live a modern life

Mid-air turbulence turns fatal: How climate change is impacting your flight journey

Turbulence is one of the uncertain factors a flyer may encounter when travelling on a plane. While these inconvenient shake-ups are rarely fatal, they quite certainly can inflict unwarranted injuries.

The rarest mishap occurred on Tuesday when a passenger died after Singapore Airlines’ Boeing 777 encountered “severe turbulence”. The flight was heading from London to Singapore but later diverted to Bangkok.

The incident, in which many passengers were injured, has thrown up multiple questions, with climate change impact being one of them.

Experts say global warming may increase instances of clear air turbulence by up to 200% by 2050. In India, the increase in flight turbulence could be felt during the pre-monsoon season.

Uh huh. In fact, it’s rare, but, it does happen

(USA Today) In the U.S., the Federal Aviation Administration reported 163 passengers and crew have been seriously injured by turbulence between 2009 and 2022.

Why only those dates? Turbulence goes plenty far back. Planes have been taken down by it.

But, you know, the talking points went out

Those are just a few, but, I got bored with the cult propaganda. And, really, all this proves is that the Earth is in a typical Holocene warm period. It doesn’t prove it is mostly/solely caused be Mankind. But, I recommend that all believers should stop flying.

    It is amazing the airplane could take such a jolt and still fly.

  2. Dana says:

    Why would the global warming climate change activists be concerned? Since they’ve all given up their fossil fuel usage, and stopped flying, any increased air turbulence will simply kill the mean ol’ conservatives who aren’t heeding the oh-so-wise progressives’ warnings, thus decreasing the resistance to their policies!

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Our Earth is in a warming period, i.e., the oceans, lands and atmosphere are warming. Unsurprisingly, the atmosphere is more active.

    Our good Christian brother Mr Dana asks, cynically: Why would the global warming activists be concerned?

    Answer: Some humans worry about the health and safety of other humans, even if good Christian conservatives do not.

    NuConservatism is all about justifying selfishness, relying on Jesus’ philosophy that if each and every individual acts in their own self-interest in all things, the rest of life takes care of itself the way God intended. In the New Testament book Donald John III 5:11-14 Jesus says: “Take all you want, whenever you want.11 It is the responsibility of the weak and infirm to defend their stuff.12 Their continued weak existence contaminates our strong blood.13 Work toward a Unified Reich.14”

      Karen (aka Rimjob) creates a meaningless word NuConservatism to go with her meaningless comment.
      Ain’t she smart?

      Bwaha! Lolgf

      Check your panties CLHM. They need changing.

    I am a pilot myself. Either that was abnormal turbulence or some fool was doing something he shouldn’t have done when entering the turbulence.

  5. James Lewis says:

    You are always advised to keep your seat belt fastened while seated, even if the seat belt sign is off. Was the injured people all walking? Was their seat belt fastened?

    And this is just pure BS. ” Thunderstorms are prominently displayed on the pilots’ navigation display – but it may not be possible to completely circumvent the storm cluster as they can stretch well over 50 nautical miles.”

    A pilot is enjoined to take whatever actions are needed to prevent harm to the aircraft and passengers. When you’re traveling 10 miles per minute 50 miles is nothing.

    Clear air turblence is a different matter. But:

    “Stuart Fox, director of flight and technical operations at the global airline body Iata, says forecasts showing incoming weather fronts or the air flow over mountains could demonstrate a higher probability of clear-air turbulence. “But you can’t see it,” he says. “Airflow strength and direction can change rapidly, and the forecasts can only indicate the likelihood.” Such wind shears can knock planes off course, lose altitude quickly or lurch violently.

    Pilots can now be steered by reports from aircraft ahead. Iata hosts a platform used by a number of rival carriers to exchange data, Fox says: “It gives immediate information for people who could be flying into the same turbulence.”

    • Professor Hale says:

      No telling if this man was a habitual seatbelt wearer and just happened to have the bad luck to have this happen when he got up to use the head. In any case, he rightly believed that the added risk of death on this trip was lower than the normal risk of just being his age. Risk is not certainty. It was tragic.
