Luton Airport will soon reach its limit of 18 million customers per year and plans are being developed to expand it to have more flights, more noise and more climate changing pollution.
Airport expansion must be stopped to protect St Albans residents locally and the climate globally.
St Albans residents are already facing broken peace and sleepless nights from increased flights concentrated overhead. Residents have never been properly consulted on this and are set to be overlooked again . This has a real effect on stress, mental wellbeing and quality of life.
More broadly, it is well known that emissions from airplanes are one of the worst for causing the climate crisis because of how high up in the atmosphere they are released. Britain should not be doubling down on climate shredding airports in Luton or anywhere else.
We have 10 years to save our planet, according to the latest reports. We must stop expansion of airports like Luton and invest instead in new technologies to drive a green economy that boosts business but also protects our future.
