TAG Farn­bor­ough ‘car­bon neu­tral’?

Pilot - - AIRMAIL -

I must ad­mit I was highly amused by TAG Farn­bor­ough’s des­per­ate at­tempts to in­gra­ti­ate it­self by declar­ing it­self ‘car­bon neu­tral’ ( Pi­lot Au­gust 2018). This claim ap­pears to dis­re­gard the thou­sands of tons of CO 2 that is and will be gen­er­ated by the biz­jets fly­ing in and out of the air­field trans­port­ing the an­ti­so­cial rich and fa­mous.

It would be an in­ter­est­ing ex­er­cise to look at the num­ber of oc­cu­pied vs un­oc­cu­pied pas­sen­ger seats on all move­ments into or out of TAG Farn­bor­ough to truly quan­tify the en­vi­ron­men­tal trav­esty that biz jets rep­re­sent. All the more out­ra­geous given the re­cent CAA rul­ing on Farn­bor­ough airspace al­low­ing these few to hi­jack large ar­eas of pre­vi­ously open airspace for their al­most ex­clu­sive ben­e­fit.
