THEY FLY WITH THE SUN
The aircraft that we currently use are responsible for 2% of CO2 emissions on the planet. Is it conceivable to be able to reduce this pollution in the coming years? Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg may have the solution: both drivers have a taste for scientific exploration in favor of environmental protection and are at the initiative of the Solar Impulse, a solar airplane with which they intend to fly around the world. On the occasion of COP21, they wish to encourage governments to take the necessary legislative measures to replace old polluting systems for clean technologies.
