JET fuel

The morning of 2 Jan 19 over Heathrow.

To all my readers, may I wish you a Happy New Year and a long, comfortable future.

The picture above was taken shortly after sunrise and shows contrails of jets over-flying Heathrow.  Note not to Heathrow, over Heathrow, going somewhere else.  I counted 47 contrails.  Each jet would have from 40 to 70 tonnes of fuel at take off. This is a tine fraction of what is happening globally, every minute of every day.

There is an old Apache saying; “The land is a mother that never dies”.  Not if we care for it like this.  If you want a long life, we had better stop this burning of fossilised fuels asap.
