  1. “Policy” often runs counter to physical reality.
    In aviation the ‘energy density’ of a propulsion system must be maximized – every bit of excess weight means less cargo and/or fewer passengers that can be moved.
    So far none of the green alternatives to jet fuel comes anywhere close to being competitive by this all-important metric.
