While the construction of Heathrow’s third runway was anticipated by many, plans to build a third runway at Heathrow Airport have just been ruled illegal according to the Court of Appeal. This was because insufficient care was given towards carbon emissions as well as UK’s obligations under the Paris Agreement and towards climate change, dealing a harsh blow to the project. What are your opinions on this?

Personally, I don’t agree with this decision. Don’t planes already burn a lot of fuel flying those holding patterns and by idling in long taxi times?
