    We need to know if safety considerations at Boeing took a back seat to producing a climate-friendly plane.  When Swedish eco-pessimist Greta Thunberg came to New York to shout, “How dare you!” last month, she maintained her climate purity by traveling on a carbon-neutral, solar-powered yacht. Now that she’s in Canada, the teen doomsayer hasn’t explained how […]
