British Activists Satirize Government, Airline Industry

British activism organizations AirPortWatch, Enough's Enough, and Greenpeace UK up the ante in the debate over air travel's contributions to global warming with SPURT, a mock-PR campaign on behalf of British aviation. When you're finished watching the satirical video, these organizations invite you to learn more about proposals to expand aviation in the UK, and to contact the British Department of Transport to register your concerns. Enough's Enough has created a print ad for the campaign (in PDF), and AirPortWatch's "Rethink!" site presents their ten-point plan for creating alternatives to more planes in the air. Thanks to reader Captain greenpower for giving us the "heads up" on this one! ::SPURT via Climate Change Action
