Since they were completed, several reports of all kind put the pollution reduction at north of 25% at lea...

Re: Policy Changes in India: Electric Vehicles, Pollution Control, Energy Source Mix, Etc.

Well, biomass has a large negative, from the point of view of the AGW crowd. Methane is dozens of times more potent as a greenhouse gas than CO2. So even a small leak from source to consumption point will add to the greenhouse trapping. Small as in - 4%. Leaks have to be kept below that level, to s...

When comparing range, one should also look at the payload capacity. Rafale can carry 2x of what Mig29 upgraded versions can carry.
