Mr Monbiot rides again:
Sunak will also promote “sustainable aviation fuel”, though there is, and can be, no such thing.
George relies upon this paper at The Ecologist. Just the place all of us go for our dose of reality. That paper neatly missing that people are actually already making fuel which will meet – good enough at least – flight requirements. That Porsche project in Argentina.
What’s happening here is that Georgie is using something cooked up by some mates as proof – when the cooked piece hasn’t been subjected to the normal processes required to turn it into a proof. Further, even that paper says:
This may offer potential in the distant future but currently is far too expensive at £900 per tonne of CO2 and produces fuel at around four times the price of conventional fuels.
OK. So flying gets more expensive. And?
