Hybrid Eco-Friendly Planes
Current aircraft spew 500 million tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every year. Scientists warn if the amount of CO2 isn't cut 80% by 2050, it will be disastrous. As it stands right now, the amount of CO2 is expected to triple by mid-century. By contrast, electric planes spew no CO2. They are clean, green technology and can be cheap to operate. An example is the 2-seat e-Genius. It successfully flew over the Alps. The operational cost of flying 300 miles is $15.00. But the bigger the e-plane, the more expensive it is to operate. That's why the industry is turning to hybrid e-planes.
