Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions From Airplanes

Aircraft pollution
Bookmark and Share

Airplanes are a fast and convenient way to travel, but they also produce large and growing amounts of greenhouse pollution. Sign the petition below to urge airlines to protect the climate.

Alarmingly, aircraft emissions are expected to more than triple by mid-century.

But new research shows that dramatic pollution reductions are clearly possible today.

American Airlines and United Airlines are major polluters and have also opposed government rules to cut greenhouse gas pollution.

Tell American and United: Action is needed now to cut greenhouse pollution from air travel.
