Product description


"It is good to have a book packed with detail about aviation, but not written from an industry perspective. Rose Bridger has produced such a book." - John Stewart, Chair of Airport Watch"Plane Truth is an essential read for all of us who care about the environment and future generations. Flying has become as natural to most people in countries like the UK and USA as having breakfast or listening to music. It is easy to forget that flying is helping through climate change emissions and other forms of pollution to destroy our world. The air industry is a huge lobby but Rose Bridger has produced a book that punctures their dangerous lies." - Derek Wall, International coordinator of the Green Party of England and Wales and author of The Rise of the Green Left (Pluto, 2010).

'Don't miss this timely and vital book as climate extremes and instability start to impact all of us. Bridger exposes the truth - make sure you read it in this vital book!' - Miriam Kennet, Co-founder and Director of the Green Economics Institute

Product Description

As aviation charges ahead to become one of the world's fastest growing industries, with passenger numbers and cargo volumes projected to double in the next 20 years, Plane Truth sounds a highly informed note of scepticism.

Rose Bridger provides a comprehensive account of aviation's impact, including how new airports are gobbling up farmland and wildlife habitats and inflicting noise and air pollution on communities. She reveals the extraordinary level of subsidy for the industry, from government expenditure on infrastructure to tax breaks, which helps to support the industry in the face of rising oil prices and the global economic downturn.

Plane Truth demolishes industry claims that fuel-efficient aircraft and alternative fuels can enable growth without increasing climate change and reveals the symbiotic relationship between aviation and the wider socio-economic problems facing humanity.
