Nelson Hyde Chick

Nelson writes that Speak Out is worth supporting, “Because I know that all green if it is not coupled with population reduction, or at least population stabilization it cannot makes things better but just make things not as bad as they could become, and the reason being is that over a twenty years you make something 25% more efficient but are using it 50% more it is still a loss, an example being Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner, which uses 20% less fuel per passenger mile; it takes the commercial aviation fleet twenty years to overturn, so let’s say every airliner is using 25% less fuel per passenger mile in 2050, but with the middle class growing in third world countries and trends continue the airlines will be flying 300% of the air miles they fly today, so even though each airplane will be more efficient, many more of them than there are today will still be spewing 225% of what they are spewing into the environment of what they are spewing today. And to add to that, our wealthy are going to start flying into space, and it takes a hundred times the amount of energy to take a pound into orbit as it does to take it to 30,000 feet.”
