Re: Environment campaigners win Heathrow runway ruling

It’s more irrational to think not building one runway in the southeast of England, is going to have any environmental impact at all. Particularly given the average 20 minute delays, plus 15 minute taxi times (x 480000) now, which would evaporate completely by building a third runway. This ruling is...

I'm an aviation enthusiast. I'm also a democracy enthusiast. Me too. I’m also an environment enthusiast. The UK has laws around decarbonisation of the economy.
