What's Wrong With This Sentence?

From the Chronicle on the environmental dangers of airtravel (as if I need ANOTHER danger of airtravel about which to worry):

While at first blush flying might seem to bear the rosy glow of mass transit, jet fuel emits dangerous global warming pollutants when burned, including CO2, NOx and contrails.
Um, contrails? Was it a Sesame Street or Mr. Rogers song about one of these things not being like the others . . . grammatically or factually in this case.

First, it was Sesame Street. Second, "Mr. Rogers" does not contain the letter "D."

Whoops, my bad. Will have to change it later.
