Airport expansion and hitting environmental targets to slow down global warming are incompatible.
But the current Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is continuing to support the expansion of Gatwick airport.
While Heathrow expansion is being challenged in the courts, Sian Berry, the Green candidate for Mayor, has criticised the current administration for only paying “lip service” to green issues.
Together with his support for the toxic Silvertown Tunnel link, it is clear that the current Mayor is letting Londoners down on creating a cleaner London for the future.
Sian Berry says:- “We are calling on all Londoners who want real climate action to join us in calling on Sadiq Khan to ignore the lobbyists and change his mind on Gatwick.”
