    Good question to ask! Airlines cause 11% of overall CO2 emissions, so it’s a good idea to keep tabs on how the industry is going to change that! Continental Airlines replaced many of the planes in its fleet with more energy-efficient models, but the overall effect has only allowed them to produce 5% less emissions. However, new developments are in the works. In Europe, the company easyJet has begun installing more efficient engines in their jets, which will translate to a reduction of 200 tons of carbon per jet per year. Other companies, like Lufthansa and Virgin Atlantic are working on similar projects.

    The most energy-efficient jets int he air right now are the Airbus A319, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the Bombardier C Series (launching in 2013,) and Turboprop planes.
