The aviation industry is an important source of pollution in the UK. Its greenhouse gas emissions were climbing ever higher before the pandemic. But instead of committing to reduce flights for good, the government still hasn’t accepted that we can’t let airports grow.
With so many airports trying to expand, urgent action is needed. Because despite the claims of the airlines, airplane technology is developing too slowly to reduce emissions quickly enough.
From Leeds to London and Southampton, local people are trying to stop climate-wrecking airport expansion. And now they need your help too.
Please sign our petition and demand Prime Minister Boris Johnson commits to no new airport expansion. He’s trying to prove his green credentials before the UK hosts the UN climate talks this November, so this is the perfect time to ask.
