Flying: background and scale

Flying is contributing ~2.5% to the global CO2 emissions, due to the emission in the stratosphere the climate impact is substantially higher, currently estimated at around 5% in the EU. At this level its impact is about a third of all emissions from transport, or 1/5 of that of global energy production. [1] And it typically dominates the emission budget of scientists.
