Incremental Attack on Air Travel

The war on gun rights in the name of authoritarian statism has been waged on an incremental basis. The war on air travel in the name of the global warming hoax will follow suit.

When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for banning air travel as part of her demented Green New Deal, even Dem Senator Crazy Mazie Hirono made a joke about taking a train back to Hawaii. It makes more sense to deny us the freedom afforded by air travel a little at a time.

From BBC News:

British Airways has launched a review into a money-saving practice which increases its greenhouse gas emissions.

It follows a BBC investigation exposing “fuel tankering” by airlines – in which planes are filled with extra fuel, usually to avoid paying higher prices for refuelling at destination airports. …

BA now says that using tankering to cut costs “may be the wrong thing to do”.

Wrong answer, BA. If you move when progressives push you, they will push you again. Then again and again. When you find yourself at the edge of a cliff, they will push you once more.

International Airlines Group (IAG), the company that owns BA, says it wants to be the world’s leading airline group on sustainability.

BA boasts it even prints its in-flight magazine on lighter paper to save weight.

That is as likely to stop the climate from fluctuating as anything leftists have proposed. But submissive signaling is the last way to get bullies to leave you alone. Inch by progressive inch, they will make it impossible for airlines to stay in business.
