The Guardian reporting - The climate crisis is leading to more turbulence during flights, driving up costs and increasing the risks for passengers and crew, according to new research.
The study found that warmer air, caused by carbon emissions, is creating bumpier flights around the world with severe turbulence in the North Atlantic up by 55% since 1979.
The study’s co-author Mark Prosser, from the University of Reading, said every additional minute spent travelling through turbulence increased the wear and tear on an aircraft, as well as the risk of injuries to passengers and flight attendants.
I really gotta get in to this whole 'study' business. An awful lotta people - mostly geeks, I'm sure - are making shitloads of money doing 'studies'. I wonder who it is who asks them to do this nonsense...
