BBC says government will go ahead with third runway at Heathrow

The BBC is reporting this evening that the government will announce tomorrow that it has approved a third runway at Heathrow.

If this is true it will be an appalling decision. The South East is already horribly overdeveloped and this will just add to the problem. A better policy would be to invest in the railways and regional airports.

Meanwhile our efforts to reduce CO2 emissions consist of irritating trifles like putting up with light bulbs that don't come on at once and paying for paper bags.
