24 Hours of Air Traffic

Aviation has been growing faster than any other source of greenhouse gases.  Between 1990 and 2004, the number of people using airports in the United Kingdom rose by 120 percent...[and the planes'] carbon dioxide emissions almost doubled in that period.  (page 174, Heat: How to Stop the Planet From Burning, George Monbiot, 2006)
