Airplanes emit greenhouse gases that cause global warming. Now, a study published in Nature Climate Change suggests that air travel and climate change could actually be coupled in a loop. Changing wind patterns due to a warming climate could lengthen certain flight times, resulting in long-haul flights burning even more fuel and emitting yet more greenhouse gases.
