Third Runway: Right or Wrong?

This is a divisive issue, pitching concerns for our prosperity against worries about the environment.
It is a fact that aircraft noise has reduced significantly these last forty years. You only tend to look up when you can hear a plane, and I’ve seen the Airbus A380 only three times, including the time I went and saw the first one land at Heathrow.
People overlook the amount of noise and exhaust emissions over areas like Cobham whilst planes are stacked in the morning rush waiting to land.
The odds are that Heathrow’s third runway will eventually be built, and it’s our job to keep the pollution to a minimum whilst protecting our economic interests.
