Heathrow Airport Climate Protest Commences
A climate change protest camp [more] has been set up outside Heathrow airport in the UK, and thousands of protesters are expected at the "Camp for Climate Action" which will highlight the link between aviation and global warming [search]. Current and projected growth in air travel is clearly not environmentally sustainable. Aviation is the fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. This sort of civil disobedience is precisely what is needed now at an immense scale against airports, SUVs, coal power, the oil industry, flacid governments and numerous other Earth destroyers if climate disaster is to be averted. Maybe the private jet carrying Leonardo DiCaprio will be blocked as he swoops in to lecture others at this 11th hour on global ecology. The sacrifice is you.
