AVERAGE GATWICK PASSENGER CREATES 85 kg OF CARBON – EVERY SINGLE FLIGHT

GREEN MEP CALLS FOR TAX ON AVIATION FUEL AND VAT ON AIR TICKETS

THE average passenger leaving a flight from Gatwick airport is responsible
for 310 kg of CO2 emissions – in everyday terms the equivalent of 85 kilo
bags of soot being thrown out of the aeroplane window, according to a new
report.

A ‘plane carrying 200 passengers would produce some 17,000 bags of soot,
according to ‘Gatwick – Climate Change Culprit’, produced by the Gatwick
Area Conservation Campaign. And because CO2 emissions are nearly three times
as damaging when released into the upper atmosphere – the average flight is
responsible for the equivalent of 46,000 bags of soot dumped at ground
level.

Caroline Lucas, a Euro-MP whose South-East England constituency covers
Gatwick Airport, is herself drafting a report on the aviation industry’s
impact on climate change for debate in the European Parliament later this
year.

“This report should be a shocking wake-up call for the airlines and the
Government,” she said.

“It can be very difficult to visualize the amounts of pollutants generated
by aircraft, but by describing CO2 emissions in terms we can all understand
- bags of soot - this report makes clear our collective responsibility to
reduce the relative size of the aviation sector.”

“The industry itself claims new technology will help reduce its emissions of
CO2 and other greenhouse gases, but the reality is that any such cuts will
be negated by the projected rise in air traffic.

“The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research has calculated that by 2040
– if the industry continues to expand as forecast – aviation will be
responsible for 100 per cent of total permissible EU emissions. This is
patently absurd, and we must take measures at both national and EU level to
cut subsidies and require airlines to reduce their emissions – and that
means reducing the number of flights.”

She added: “Whatever measures the Government and EU agree by which to
deliver it, we simply must reduce demand for flying – or face climate
disaster. If the Government is serious about tackling climate change, as it
maintains, it must halt all runway building and rule out any further
expansion of capacity at Gatwick and other airports.”
