Green jet fuel is here -- so why are airlines not using it? | CNN Travel

I'm not sure scaling up is going to make this stuff affordable.
Maybe they can try it out on Air Force One with Brandon aboard

Already off to one of the hotter years across the world, it’s one thing for temperatures this relentless (above 110F/120F) to swelter barren, largely unpopulated deserts like the Sahara or Death Valley in the Mojave, but the Jacobabad state of Pakistan has a population of around one million.

There’s only so much heat the human body can get used to before temperatures sustained this high carry an insidious, widespread health impact. For starters, the body looses its ability to naturally cool itself which disrupts the sleep cycle, reducing nightly sleep an hour or two a night. Much like other insidious conditions such as diabetes or malnutrition, long term unmet sleeping needs chips away at the overall life span.

some states are transitioning to renewable energy faster than others. Using data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, 24/7 Wall St. identified the states producing the most electricity from renewable sources. States are ranked based on the share of electric power production from renewable sources, which are: biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, and wind.

Depending on the state, the share of electricity production coming from renewable sources ranges from 2.5% to nearly 100%. Encouragingly, the vast majority of states have increased their renewable electricity production in recent years. Over the past decade, renewable sources as a share of total energy production has increased by over 5 percentage points in most states.

> Largest non-renewable energy source: Coal (14.1 million MWh)


2. South Dakota
> Electricity from renewables, 2020: 80.5% of total (11.4 million MWh)

> Largest renewable energy source: Hydroelectric Conventional (5.8 million MWh)
> Largest non-renewable energy source: Coal (1.6 million MWh)

1. Vermont
> Electricity from renewables, 2020: 99.9% of total (2.2 million MWh)
> 10-yr. change in share of renewable energy: +72.3 ppt. (the highest)

Interesting report on the effect of cleaner air from the US and Europe.

We are in a climate emergency.

sound the alarm!
so, what do we do when we hear the alarm?

What doesn’t help, not so much whatever the cause is for so much heat, but more so what fatally results in sustained temps over 120F is the sheer number of people living in places where either mankind wasn’t mean to live or where far too many people are living in the first place. Meaning anytime anything presents a disruption to the thin margins of life in places where so many people are already on the edge of, the results are exponentially compounded.

Over TWO HUNDRED MILLION people live in Pakistan. Of course the droughts, severe heat, poverty, malnutrition, and contagious outbreaks were always going to compound as populations continue to vastly overgrow themselves around parts of the globe such as India, China, Bangladesh, and Pakistan.

If it’s a climate emergency it’s just as much a population emergency too.

Pretty much sums it up.The science community was sounding the alarm at least since 2005 that it wasn't a question of if but when Phoenix,Vegas and such places would run out of water
