“Why should everyone else suffer just so aviation can stay the same?" said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Transport Secretary.
Commenting on the warning from the Climate Change Committee that the UK will have to cut emissions by 90% by 2050 so that the aviation industry can continue to grow, Norman Baker said:
“This is a vindication of what the Liberal Democrats have been saying for a long time. The expansion of Heathrow and other airports in the South East is incompatible with attempts to cut carbon emissions.
“Why should everyone else suffer just so aviation can stay the same? It’s time the airline industry took a reality check.”
In the UK as well as the world, we live in interesting times. The global economy is in tatters, there is war all over the place and not content with killing and maiming each other, we're also destroying the environment we live in. In the UK we have a failing government and one could go far enough to say a failing political system. There is a lot going on that makes the blood boil. News Rage is a state of angry mind coupled with the actual venting of that anger which manifests itself in the publication of interesting and hopefully entertaining but highly critical articles about something that has been reported in the news within the last 24 hours.
