Predict and Decide

November 1, 2006

The Environmental Change Institute, part of Oxford University, published a comprehensive report in Oct 2006 into the policy questions surrounding aviation and climate change. It confirms almost everything we have been saying.

The Environmental Change Institute, part of Oxford University, published a comprehensive report in Oct 2006 into the policy questions surrounding aviation and climate change.Predict and Decide synthesizes a wide range of research into climate science, aviation growth, and the economics and socio-demographics of air travel.The report finds that the problem is too urgent to be left to the distant prospect of emissions trading and that the Government can and should raise Air Passenger Duty without delay. This would not cause the economy to collapse, hit poor people hardest or be unpopular with the public.

The report confirms what AEF and many campaign groups have been saying for years, but its academic pedigree gives it extra weight.
