Heathrow Third Runway Will Damage Climate

Friends of the Earth

Reacting to the news that UK Government has chosen in principle to support the building of a new runway at Heathrow Airport, Friends of the Earth Scotland Director Dr Richard Dixon commented,

"Supporting a new runway at Heathrow is incompatible with serious action on climate change. Emissions from aviation are already 7% of the UK total and another runway will lead to more flights and increasing damage to the climate.
