Today I am posting a message from The Two Minute Action Team: about reducing air craft traffic – and the pollution that causes – by ending ‘ghost flights’.
“All you have to do is to sign a petition on “ghost flights”. These are empty aircraft flown by airlines to preserve what is often their most valuable asset: permission to land at and take off from, high-demand airports such as Heathrow. These are real flights creating carbon dioxide, air pollution and noise. A good example of how commercial considerations are prioritised over the environment by both government and airlines.
The petition is here: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/605749
Please share this with anyone who cares about health or the environment.
Once again thanks for taking action – your support can really make a difference.
