  • Airlines cannot avoid their duties
    • Leader: Airlines pay no tax on aviation fuel and are currently excluded from international schemes for controlling carbon emissions. This state of affairs is unfair and unacceptable
  • Britain’s new eco battle
    • A historic decision over a new runway for Heathrow is close.

It is a struggle which will shape Britain’s eco future for generations to come
  • The arguments for and against Heathrow’s runway 3
    • The growth of aviation will become a fierce battleground between environmentalists and big business. It is a struggle which will shape Britain’s eco future for generations to come
    • Justine Greening, Tory MP for Putney and a shadow Treasury minister
    • Professor David King, former chief scientific adviser to the government
