Not free to fly — Feb 8th 2012, 18:55 by J.A.
Why not the simplest solution of all?
Every country should copy the EU law and apply it in 2013.
To eliminate double-charging, the fee need only be charged to each airplane at landing, (or, at take-off) but not both.
Airlines, such as Virgin and others which already use a 50/50 blend of biofuel, should receive a ‘free pass’ regarding this program – everywhere they fly.
Net reduction of emissions is the goal – after all.
The difference flying with biofuel? Reported up to 80% reductions in CO2 according to Boeing. See: http://johnbrianshannon.com/ for more information.
