> Is Green Air Travel Becoming a Possibility With the Dreamliner?
ofcourse, if it's only painted green it will be green, though --necessarily, as implied by physics-- even with all the cosmeticist improvements the PR department can dream up implemented this technics will stay one of the most environmentally destrcutive ever invented

It's a start, but we need to do more. Air travel is up, the skies have thousands of planes all day and one new airliner will not change or affect much.

None of them will do that much there are too many planes now unless the new solar one i saw that has been invented can in the future carry passengers

Every one of us can jelp to make air travel greener: If you fly, set off your emissions. If your friends fly, offer to gift them offsetting their emissions for birthday or something.

Noted. It seems only logical that greener options are sought for ALL modes of transport, not only for cars. This is a first step of hopefully many more.

Thnx Cher!! Boeing had a 'Name The New Boeing Plane' contest about 10 yrs. ago and those who were interested in naming her could submit name suggestions. I suggested 'Dreamliner.' I don't remember the other names but you could vote up to 25 times a day. Needless to say Dreamliner won!! I have no proof to back up my story but anyone who is a true friend of mine knows that I don't make up stories. Thnx again Cher!!
