This originated with me sending regular emails to my close friends and family on environmental issues and changes which could ‘green’ their lifestyle. The group has unintentionally grown quickly as friends of friends ask to join. The EcoEmails don’t always give people an easy solution to a problem but try to make them aware that every decision they make has environmental and sustainability consequences. If you would like to join pls email me at

The government decided today to build a 3rd runway at Heathrow (Hoon what a Goon!)

This means that 700 homes will have to be demolished to make way for the runway,
And the number of flights using Heathrow from about 480,000 a year now to 702,000 by 2030

Making Heathrow the single largest emitter of CO2 in the UK

The UK government has committed to cut emissions by 80% by 2050 (including air travel)
This is unattainable with such a colossal increase in flights

Thought some of you might like to know the contact details of the

Geoff Hoon (Secretary of State for Transport)

Or the head of Future Heathrow
(The Pro-Heathrow group)

Future Heathrow

Clive Soley
The Campaign Director
Future Heathrow
Room 1042
Queens Building
Heathrow Airport

I am sure both would love to get an email or post card from you all.
