Save the planet! Pee before you fly

Via Andrew Bolt
Herald Sun, October 8, 2009

If they were really such planet savers, they wouldn’t be flying in the first place:

A Japanese airline has started asking passengers to go to the toilet before boarding in a bid to reduce carbon emissions. All Nippon Airways (ANA) claims that empty bladders mean lighter passengers, a lighter aircraft and thus lower fuel use.

Belief in man-made global warming will soon be laughed out of existence.

PS: Let’s calculate: Let’s very generously estimate that 50 passengers per flight have fairly full bladders (each holding 300 ml of urine, weighing 300 g) and take the airline’s advice. That’s just 15 kg of weight saved for each flight. Wow – not even the weight of a single full suitcase.
