Posted Nov 28 2021 by Dave Darby of Lowimpact.org

In the run-up to Christmas (or for non-Christians, the winter holiday period, if you prefer) I’m going to try to spread a little love with a series of articles looking at the growing polarisation of society along the left-right spectrum.

Stop greenwashing of aviation: 1. efficiency

Over the next five weeks we’ll be publishing a range of Stay Grounded factsheets about various kinds of techno-greenwashing provided by the aviation industry.
