An increase in greenhouse gas emissions from the Aspen-Pitkin County Airport is linked to a 2011 runway expansion that allows planes to take off with more passengers, necessitating more jet fuel, a city official said at Monday night’s council work session.
The council met with staff from the city’s Canary Initiative — which was launched in 2005 to combat global warming — for a discussion about a recent report quantifying Aspen’s carbon footprint in 2014. About every three years, the city conducts a greenhouse gas emissions inventory for the Aspen area, and the latest report shows that while the carbon footprint is down 7.4 percent from the 2004 baseline, it decreased just 0.44 percent between 2011 and 2014.
