Descubrir el transporte aéreo y el medio ambiente

  • Arturo Benito y Elisa Benito
Language of the publication:

This book describes the characteristics and probable future development of the main effects of air transport on the environment; it provides an overview of the operation and policies of the national and international bodies responsible for monitoring them, including public opinion, which is strongly influential, and establishes some scenarios for the consequences of these policies succeeding or failing. The book concludes with some key questions regarding the long-term evolution of this industry, such as: Can air transport be sustained under today's operating conditions and growth rates? This and other questions are intended to make the reader think about the many unknown quantities in contemporary air transport. Air transport has led to some indisputable achievements and has contributed to society's economic and cultural development, but as with any human intervention in the environment, it must be compatible with protecting nature.

Arturo Benito and Elisa Benito use simple language and an entertainingly educational discourse to make this book ideal for anyone interested in learning about the latest developments and challenges faced daily by this mode of transport in its quest to make growth compatible with preservation of the best environmental conditions.
