Two recent academic papers on aviation and climate change

30th January, 2013

Academics from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research – Professor Kevin Anderson, Dr Alice Bows and Dr Ruth Wood – have returned to the vexed question of aviation and climate change.

See articles Aviation and shipping privileged – again? UK delays decision to act on emissions and A one-way ticket to high carbon lock-in: the UK debate on aviation policy. They do not pull their punches.

Much of the recent work of Prof Anderson and colleagues focuses on the fact that climate change forecasts are now worse than feared, a message that remains unpalatable to most decision-makers.
