Aircraft contrails -- the white streaks aircraft leave in the sky -- could be as bad for the climate as their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the researchers said.Aircraft contrails -- the white streaks aircraft leave in the sky -- could be as bad for the climate as their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the researchers said.

In a world affected by climate change, every little tweak we make counts. While we're still sorting out jet fuel, there's another plane travel impact we could cut back on rather easily, according to a new study.In a world affected by climate change, every little tweak we make counts.

A Small Change in Airplane Altitude Could Reduce Climate Impact of Contrails by 59%

Greener fuels, electric engines and more efficient aircraft are all being touted as ways to reduce the environmental harm of flying, but a new study suggests one simple move could help existing flights drastically cut their impact.Greener fuels, electric engines and more efficient aircraft are all being touted as ways to reduce the environmental harm of flying, but a new study suggests one simple move could help existing flights drastically cut their impact.

The climate cost of aviation could be significantly reduced by making small changes to the altitudes at which aircrafts fly, a new study suggests. Contrails – the white fumes often spotted trailing behind planes – are thought to have more of a warming effect than the CO2 produced by planes.The climate cost of aviation could be significantly reduced by making small changes to the altitudes at which aircrafts fly, a new study suggests.

(CNN) -- Greener fuels, electric engines and more efficient aircraft are all being touted as ways to reduce the environmental harm of flying, but a new study suggests one simple move could help existing flights drastically cut their impact.(CNN) -- Greener fuels, electric engines and more efficient aircraft are all being touted as ways to reduce the environmental harm of flying, but a new study suggests one simple move could help existing flights drastically cut their impact. By changing the flying altitude by just couple of thousand feet on fewer than 2% of all scheduled flights, a study by a team of scientists at Imperial College London concludes that aviation's damage to the climate could be reduced by as much as 59%.
