如果航空业是一个国家,它将成为地球上气候变化的第七大贡献者。国际民航组织专家估计,如果不加制止,未来7年的排放量将增加70%,到2050年将增加300-700%。©Chris Martin Bahr / WWF-Canon

世界自然基金会(WWF)气候变化项目官员Brad Schallert评论国际民用航空组织(ICAO)理事会代表未能提供全面的方法来管理国际航空的碳排放。

+$“The politics of delay ruled the day and yet another ICAO meeting has passed with delegates failing to deliver a global solution for ratcheting down carbon emissions from international aviation. By kicking the can down the road yet again, delegates must reach an agreement by September or the airline industry will face a patchwork of regional regulations with no viable path to curbing skyrocketing emissions.

+$“As President Obama looks for opportunities to slash emissions on all fronts, we urge him to direct U.S. representatives to ICAO to proactively propose a global market-based solution in advance of this September’s ICAO Assembly meeting. Delivering a solution at this important meeting could be a solid win for the President’s climate change agenda.”
