Joined Friends of the Earth in Muswell Hill earlier today to point out to the Government their muddle over their aviation policy.
How can they say that climate change is the biggest threat to mankind, ask us all to do our bit – and then say (as Ruth Kelly did in Parliament last week), ‘but we have to have a third runway at Heathrow’?
This sort of predict and provide approach on air travel will never deliver the sort of environmental policy we need. It’s time the Government stopped being two-faced and put its aviation policy where its environmental mouth is! (More photos here)
