    aircraft CO2 emissions
    the easiest way to decrease CO2 emissions
    is to design aircraft to fly at a slower speed,
    for example, to cruise at Mach 0.75 instead of the more
    typical M 0.85 to 0.89.

    there would be many benefits,
    fuel savings, weight savings, lower landing speeds,
    etc, etc.

    another thing to look at, turboprops instead of jets.
    there would be many benefits, among them
    would be more noise and vibration in the cabin
    .
    .................................................. ...

    of course, the jet-set greenies would complain
    about wasting a few minutes of there time

    DUmmy apparently doesn't know a turboprop is a jet.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    "Lower landing speeds?" What a complete fool.:eek:

    Chemtrails are certain chemicals that the VRWC drops over the population that controls DUmmies. We genetically engineered to only effect liberals but he geniuses over at DU caught on so we scaled it back.

    That is of course part of the joke, even the DUmmies don't know! The various
    theories bounced around are weather control to mind control. When I was on
    a Lib board POAC I used to get into "discussions" with a guy who complained
    about CHEMTRAILS all the time. He lived right near Tampa International.

    Teh Stupid is always strong with the ChemTrail folk, they are almost
    as funny as the 9/11 crowd.

    One of our favorite ChemTrail DUmmies was OneBlueSky. He used to post a ton of Chemtrail stuff and people started to notice him on the DUmp until someone pointed
    out he was just posting pics from whacko sites and he admitted he didn't own
    a digital camera. :D Then Skinner let it be known that Chemtrails would not be
    taken seriously on the DUmp and OneBlueSky fell silent...:(
    May the FORCE be with you!

    I'm still trying to figure out how it being louder in the cabin with increased vibration is supposed to be a benefit.
