The intent of the above 'story' in the "Ecologist" is clearly to highlight the imagined cost of a real GW (global warming).
On the other hand, the intent of this 'post' is to illustrate the real cost of an imagined GW.
Since the establishment of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in 1988 ...the search for evidence to support the contemporary neo-orthodox climatologists' idea of atmospheric/oceanic anthropogenic carbon dioxide driven catastrophic global warming has been relentless and detrimental to advancements in science.
Because planetary "climate changes" are so complex -practically all fields of scientific study come to bear upon the "issue". This means;
any scientific discipline must be congruent to the established narrative of CAGW (catastrophic anthropogenic global warming) or face resistance from the political interests vested in controlling 'CO2 pollution'.
The Boeing Company is interested in developing a hypersonic passenger jet. But greater speeds require greater amounts of fuel (five times higher fuel burn than conventional aircraft) producing more CO2. This is unfortunate because the customers for these 21st century aircraft are the airlines and the airlines have committed to reducing the environmental footprint (i.e. CO2) of their operations. As members of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) they are adopting the International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO) Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA).
Those commitments would likely not be realized by any commercial airline maintaining the futuristic jet in it's fleet.
In other words;
significant scientific advancements in aviation may be squelched by the consensus belief in an apocalyptic future driven by Man's Carbon Dioxide.
That is but one example of why bending the sciences to accommodate a belief in CAGW is plunging humanity into a Neo-scientific Dark Age.
