Exactly right.
And that isn't even the tip of the ice berg. Every single climate prediction has been wrong. C02 has never been a temperature driver on this planet. In our own interglacial we have...

Since C02 is a very very wimpy temperature driver there is no real climate emergency, only one that is manufactured. So Aviation, together with the entire fossil fuel economy has little to nothing to...

RIP Capt. Al Haynes.

Captain Al Haynes of UA 232 fame has died. What he and his crew accomplished at Sioux City in 1989 is nothing short of remarkable airmanship. RIP Captain.

Not true. Temp and C02 historically have not correlated. Nor in the last 20 years. Quite the opposite in fact..Just one of the many smoking guns against serious AGW is that after glacial periods...

So did they put a final nail in the coffin of SAIL or not? If they did then the strike was worth every minute. If they didn't they will have to fight SAIL again in the next contract and it will be...

A319/320/321 vs. B737-800

Anyone flown both? I'm on the bus with 2500 hours on it and just can't seem to get comfortable with the thing. I just don't trust it. With close to 30 years in the airline business it's the first...
