Fasten Your Safety Belt

If you're Trumpet you have nothing to worry about, but for people who do understand science and the consequences of not looking after our environment, this is worth making a note of.

According to a new study from the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading, turbulence  in passenger planes could increase by almost 150% with the culprit being climate change.

With increased levels of CO2 in the atmosphere, planes will have a more difficult time with the vertical wind shears that create resistance and destabilise an aircraft. 

It has been estimated that light turbulence could see a 59% increase,  moderate turbulence up to a 94%increase and heavy turbulence a 149% increase.
