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.
