THE GUARDIAN: Heathrow could get sonic boom 'every five minutes' from fast jets

Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 30/1/2019

Description

Prof Kevin Anderson, of Manchester University’s Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, said: “Science has demonstrated the planetary-scale impacts that our deep addiction to fossil fuels is having on global ecosystems and on our own children’s futures. Yet rather than transform the world to one of low-carbon prosperity, our resources and ingenuity are being squandered on toys for a privileged few. Do we really think that the prospect of attending Davos by supersonic jet is an appropriate response to the existential threats we face?”
