Hello! I'm not an "alarmist". I came to write that Southwest Airlines really should be offering for its more reality-based consumers, who care about the future of biological life on earth, some simple links to buy carbon offsets, to offset the massive amounts of global warming pollution emitted by jet planes every day on every flight. Global warming is a true theory. There's another scientific theory that explains how a certain shape of wing, moved through the air a certain way, will generate lift and cause the wing to be lifted upwards to the sky. That is a true story too. See how nice it is to have some scientific stories that are true? Here are articles I read recently that convinced me I want to be buying some carbon offsets to offset my next flight. I was trying to figure out, if I am really conerned about this issue, should I not fly at all? Is it better to drive a car? Is it worth it to take a train or carpool or take a bus? How much better is Megabus than Greyhound? One of the articles said, if I spend about $9.90 and donate it to a wind farm, that would be enough to offset the carbon for the flight. So much easier than the other ways to get around it! It would still be even better to avoid flying, and spend even more on carbon offsets. https://www.yaleclimateconnections.org/2019/02/i-feel-guilty-about-flying-help/ https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/27/climate/airplane-pollution-global-warming.html Here's an overview of the scientific knowledge that humanity has gained on the subject. The vast majority of this was learned in the past 5 centuries or so, although some of the philosophers from ancient Greece and the ancient Romans knew some of this before the time of Christ : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_warming. If you want to see a false scientific theory, the flat earth society is an excellent example of that.
