Aircraft Pressurisation – Carbon Impact or Strokes Mitigation?

Aircraft Pressurisation.
Lately many people worry about the carbon impact of long flights. Of course the newer planes like the Dreamliner and A380 are significantly more efficient and therefore preferable & should be cheaper but, more importantly, much better pressurised. Consequently less risk of strokes in the weeks after a long flight… Boyle’s Law, distended blood vessels, haemorrhaging or loosened thrombosis and blown away AVM meshes… Somebody ought to correlate deaths and crises like these with very long recent flights in older poorly pressurised aircraft!

About adelaidepete

Now live in Adelaide South Australia and have always worked in Systems & Software Engineering. I am enjoying commenting on, suggesting and discussing innovative solutions to problems and useful risk mitigation strategies and recently interested in the realm of public policy re urban planning & disasters - the focus of this blog. I am interested in technology, gadgetry, enhancing productivity & functionality, urban planning, military thinking and public policy. I enjoyed periods I spent in USA (Reston, Virginia Beach & Dallas) & Europe (Germany, Spain, Italy & Greece) but genuinely love Australia, most people, animals, singing, dancing & life.
