Airport growth 'flight of fancy'

This is from the Beeb:

Green campaigners have said plans to expand a Kent airport to handle up to six million passengers a year by 2033 are "flights of fancy".

Kent Green Party has delivered a critical submission in response to Kent International Airport's plans.

Airport owner Infratil said it expected passenger numbers to grow as London airports became more congested.

Original press release here. Airport expansion must be stopped, the ludicracy of the damage that we are doing to the eco-system seems completely missed by many, especially those who are concerned about profits rather than a future. Fortunately some of the Bishops have spoken out against the profit culture - not sure why they put their comments in the Torygraph - the Tories are even keener on profit above people than Labour.
