damn those jets!

No, I’m not talking about the New York football team (although they have been killing my fantasy team this season). I’m talking about the jets that fly overhead. If you live in the Smyrna area like I do, you see what I’m talking about close up as the jets arrive and depart Dobbins Air Reserve Base at all hours of the day.

Why am I angry with these aircraft? (Besides the fact that they consistently wake my one-year-old every time she goes down for a nap, that is?) Apparently, cirrus clouds caused by aircraft contrails could be contributing to global warming. How uncool is that?

Check out the Astronomy Picture of the Day from NASA’s site to see a Georgia scarred with such contrails. How horrid!

What can we do to avert this potentially apocalyptic catastrophe? I suggest we ignore it and hope it goes away. Or maybe we make a fantastical machine that teleports people over long distances (in one piece), so we don’t have to fly anymore.

[Thanks to Boing Boing for breaking this scary story.]
