emma_greenpeaceIn an effort to stop Britain’s Heathrow airport from further expansion — a move that would increase greenhouse gases — Greenpeace UK has purchased land within the site of a proposed third runway. Joining the organization on the deed is actress Emma Thompson, along with comedian Alastair McGowan and prospective Tory parliamentary candidate Zac Goldsmith. From their blog,

“Heathrow expansion isn’t only an issue for those of us unfortunate enough to live on the flight path. If expansion goes ahead Heathrow will become the largest single source of greenhouse gas emissions in the whole country. And the government’s plans to expand airports across the UK will make it impossible for us to meet our commitment to reduce emissions and stop runaway climate change. As legal owners of this plot we will take the opportunity to oppose airport expansion at every stage in the planning process.”

Emma Thompson said: “I don’t understand how any government remotely serious about committing to reversing climate change can even consider these ridiculous plans. It’s laughably hypocritical. That’s why we’ve bought a plot on the runway. We’ll stop this from happening even if we have to move in and plant vegetables.”

Greenpeace is encouraging everyone to sign up and add their name to the plot — even though there can be only four legal owners on the deed itself. Sounds like a great effort to fight Heathrow’s expansion plans. Want to learn more? Jump here for all the details!
