Ah, greenwash at its finest. I'm sure reducing the number of vehicles going
to and from the airport will really make up for the extra emissions from the
aircraft using the new runway such as the A380 which burns half a ton of fuel
just to get from the gate to take off position.


If 300 of the passengers arrived by car, the extra congestion, let alone
emissions, would be noticeable.
