“They are literally poisoning us,” calls in France to ban private jet flights

Published

Private jet flights and their emissions are causing growing outrage on French social media. Meanwhile, the French government is calling for a reduction in energy consumption.

For weeks, the summer effects of climate change have fueled a heated public debate about private jet emissions, so the French government felt it necessary to take a stand on the issue.

Transport Minister Clément Beaune said in a weekend interview that he would support “regulating” private jet flights: “There are urgent reasons or economic obligations, but there can’t be a convenient individual mode of transport (private jet), while general mobilization (in terms of savings) requested by President Emmanuel Macron requires everyone to work.”

“They are literally poisoning us,” calls in France to ban private jet flights

The minister has not ruled out taxing private jet travel. In response to a question from French public television, the Ministry of Transport stated that “a ban on private jets is out of the question, as business aviation is an important sector of the French economy.” The ministry wants this issue to be resolved only at the European level.

Julien Baillou, general secretary of the opposition Green Party, said on Monday that the topic of “private jets” had become part of France’s political discourse and called for “much more decisive action.”

A private jet pollutes the air ten times more than a commercial one. It’s time to ban them, because they literally poison us.

Will the new Intel processors really become much more expensive? Prices for new items lit up a few hours before the announcement

Will the new Intel processors really become much more

Intel Raptor Lake processors will be unveiled in a few hours, but now we have the opportunity to look at prices that may be in line with the recommended ones.

Will the new Intel processors really become much more expensive?  Prices for new items lit up a few hours before the announcement

The fact is that the new items were lit up in the NewEgg store, and marked as recently released. Given the size and status of this network, it is possible that the prices listed there now correspond to those that Intel itself will reveal in a few hours.

And if so, then the same price increase that the company warned about earlier will take place.

  • Core i9-13900K – $660 ($70 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i9-13900KF – $630 ($65 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i7-13700K – $450 ($40 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i7-13700KF – $430 ($45 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i5-13600K – $330 ($40 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i5-13600KF – $310 ($45 more than its predecessor)

Thus, we will get a rise in price by 10-15%. If we talk about competition with AMD, then the Ryzen 5 7600X at a price of $300 is 10% cheaper than the Core i5-13600K, the Ryzen 7 7700X at a price of $400 is more than 10% cheaper than the Core i7-13700K, and the Core i9-13900K at a price of $630 is significantly more expensive than the 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X, but significantly cheaper than the top-end Ryzen 9 7950X. We wrote about the performance of new AMD products yesterday.
