Could Aviation Be "Greened"?

Do you have any ideas how aviation could reduce it's environmental "footprint"? Do you think aeroplane with electrical engine has a future? Jet engine with Hydrogen-fuel? Diesel engines with biodiesel? Electrical aeroplanes with solar-cells? Or will aviation have at all no future after the "oil era"?

Nuclear. No carbon released iirc. Vastly improved carbon scrubbing technology may make it a moot point. They're making some pretty amazing advances in just cleaning the crap out of the air. Of course, depending on how much you've internalized faith based environmentalism you might rethink the importance since these emails surfaced indicating key institutions have been totally bullshitting us for years about this.

yes a pulse electro magnetic engine i draw this up in 1990 but can not find an engineer to understand me.
