Say NO to Bristol airport expansion

As you know, last week Greenpeace scored another historic victory when the new government scrapped plans for a third runway at Heathrow Airport, along with new runways at Gatwick and Stansted.

This is a huge victory for the campaign and great cause for celebration. Between us we've won an important battle, so please take a moment to pat yourself on the back. You've earned it!

But we still haven't reached our ultimate goal: we now need the government to go further and develop a new aviation policy that properly takes account of climate change.

There are still plans in the pipeline to expand nearly 30 other airports across the UK. If these plans go ahead, they'll lead to a massive increase in greenhouse gas emissions.

If the new government is serious about tackling climate change, it needs to stop all airport expansion plans, not just the big three in the southeast. A new aviation policy fit for the 21st century must be drawn up - one which recognises the urgent need to slash our carbon output.

On the 24th May, local councillors in Bristol will decide whether to expand Bristol Airport. This is the first green test for the new Tory Transport Secretary, Philip Hammond. If he is serious about getting a grip on the UK's spiralling aviation emissions, he needs to stop this application going ahead.

We want you to write and ask him to do just that, and let him know that we'll keep going until the new government recognises that all airport expansion has to stop.

Take action here:

Thanks again,
