Greenpeace trying hard to block London Heathrow expansion
Add Greenpeace to the list of expansion detractors. The eco-organization has purchased a plot of land that's directly in the way of the planned runway, and the environmentally-concerned entity has big plans for its latest purchase: to make it as difficult as possible for the government to take the land back, Greenpeace is dividing it into tiny chunks that will be sold off to anyone who feels like expansion is bad news.
With so much opposition, many are beginning to wonder if Parliament would even approve the airport expansion at all. Opponents suggest that the increase in carbon emissions would make it impossible for the UK to reduce its carbon footprint as planned.
