INCREASE IN NOISE, AIR, FUEL, TRAFFIC. IT WILL BE GOING AGAINST ALL GOVERNMENT GUIDE LINES FOR REDUCING THE GREEN HOUSE EFFECT.
We need to reduce air travel- it's astonishing that plans to expand will even be considered.
Bad in so many ways: noise, economy, climate.
I believe future flying costs have to increase - no more cheap flights to holiday destinations - and expansions will not be used at full capacity so being waste of time effort and public money
It is glaringly obvious that, in the current financial and economic situation, the last thing that we require is airport expansion. To push ahead with this would be a reckless and stupid act which could only be contemplated by corrupt individuals.
Loss of built heritage is only the tip of the iceberg - but see http://www.spab.org.uk/html/noticeboard/campaigns/ for more details. Once it has gone it can never be replaced.
Along with many other obvious reasons against the airport expansion, my main concern is that we are constantly being told to reduce our ' carbon footprint ' but yet you want to make a bigger air port and create thousands of tonnes more of pollution to the atmosphere.
I am totally opposed a new runway for heathrow airport, the only people who want it are BAA management as they see it as a way to make more money.Businesses in london dont need it, luton (not owned by BAA) needs refurbing, high speed train links need building..
Heathrow a history of broken promises.
We urgently need to reduce flights not increase them! At higher altitudes carbon dioxide emissions cause between three and five times more global warming than at ground level. We cannot easily change to hydrogen power because water vapour has a similar impact.
The aviation industries' continued expansion is another example of global, national and local decision makers allowing action in spite of overwhelming evidence that this behavior is irresponsible and irreversibly damaging. It is not needed and with further public engagement would not be wanted. We must fight to tax aviation properly and stop pricing the masses into frequent flying. We will all lose in the end - socially, environmentally and even economically.
