27. 1 commercial jet taking off uses the fuel equivalent to 20,000 cars...
Edited on Mon Mar-14-05 11:12 AM by ElsewheresDaughter
with there engines running none stop for 24 hours.... now multiply those 20,000 automobiles with there engines running 24 hrs, by 30,000 commercial planes lifting off a day(and thats just in the US)...hmmm? and we talk hypocritically about our concern for the greenhouse gasses and the global warming and animal extinctions? now, keep in mind the tons of commercial jet fuel that ALL of these planes now landing MUST dump into the oceans and over our farmlands, seeping toxins into and poluting our drinking water supplies which they are ordered by law to do for safety reasons (because they may crash on landing and explode in flames) before they are allowed to land.

gee i guess you could say i am somewhat against excessive air travel!
