Letter: Aviation & Climate Change

Letters Page Article to Sheffield Star (February 2004)

Aviation & Climate Change

Friends of the Earth’s concerns about aviation are not based on belief, but established science. Aviation is the fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions. There is an overwhelming scientific consensus that these are responsible for climate change. We therefore have no problem in justifying our stance to smaller countries. The economic damage associated with climate change will be huge and will fall most heavily upon the developing world. Unfortunately cheap flights are costing us the earth. This may be an unpopular message, but it is true.
