As Terminal Five At Heathrow Opens
click for bigger image

28th March 2008 | Issue 626 - TERMINAL DISASTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT - Yesterday was the start of another inglorious chapter in the story of air travel as Heathrow Terminal 5 (T5) officially opened. After the whopping £4.3 billion spent on essentially a better-lit new cattle shed, it should have been a red letter day for British Airways. But the only red on show was that of hundreds of ‘Flashmob’ protesters who – having previously milling around the check-in areas looking innocuous - simultaneously ripped off their over-garments to reveal matching red t-shirts emblazoned with the simple message, “STOP AIRPORT EXPANSION”.

Jetting in for the anti-climate change march.

How Emissions Trading Works

29th June 2001 | Issue 311 - EMISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - “The unsigned Kyoto protocol is becoming a carbon trade deal dominated by businessmen desperate for a piece of the new market in trading.” - Rising Tide UK

In the lead up to the next month’s climate change talks in Bonn, the European Union has published draft plans for an “emissions trading” scheme which they hope will be up and running by 2005. But what we’re getting here is not a solution to climate change but essentially a market for buying and selling the right to pollute.
