Too weak to do anything

Meer over de eisen aan nieuwe vliegtuigen in de New York Times:

The standards would require an average 4 percent reduction in fuel consumption during the cruise phase of flight starting in 2028 when compared with planes delivered in 2015. However, planes burn the most fuel during takeoffs and landings, while cruising at high altitudes is already the most fuel-efficient period.

Deze nieuwe wetgeving — nog los van eventuele naleving en werkelijk effect — gaat niet veel opleveren.
