Climate Emergency Manchester (1) has released a brilliant 15 page report pointing out that an expanding airport (Manchester City Council owns 35.5%, btw) is not compatible with reaching the emissions reductions we need to.
You can read their blog post (and access the report itself) here.
Please share widely in all your networks.
Next Thursday, 9th December, the Environment and Climate Change Scrutiny Committee of Manchester City Council meets. Will they allow CEM to speak? Time will tell.
(1) Full disclosure – I was a co-founder/core group member. I left the group in November 2021 because I’m out of here soon.
