Climate Change and the UK Aviation White Paper (Tyndall Briefing Note No. 10, December 2003)

22nd November, 2003

This briefing provides an overview of a Policy Note recently published in the Journal of Environmental Planning and Management by Tyndall North researcher Paul Upham, co-editor of the book Towards Sustainable Aviation (Earthscan, 2003). The Policy Note reviews the White Paper planning process and summarily estimates the carbon emissions implied by the proposed aviation expansion. The Note argues that the White Paper planning process gave an unreasonably low priority to the anticipated environmental impacts of aviation expansion, given their projected magnitude.Tyndall Centre report
