1/ 's 3rd runway at HKIA is officially open. It reminds me of my decade-long struggle to fight against such a white-elephant expansion and those friends and foes involved in the past decade. It would surely be long enough for me to write a book on it but a 🧵 is nice too

The top 1% of polluters in the EU cause eight times (!) as many climate-heating emissions just with their flights (!!) as the 1.5-degree limit would allow.

RT @StayGroundedNet@twitter.com

Never forget that the richest 1% of EU citizens cause 23 tonnes of CO2 per capita with flying alone.
That's five times as much as a person in the poorer half of the population with all their vital needs such as housing, food and mobility.

Just to be clear: what @fietsprofessor@twitter.com ascribes here to "humanity" is true for a minority of the world's population.

1% of people cause 50% of aviation emissions.

RT @fietsprofessor@twitter.com

Humanity. Desperately trying to save our way of life at the cost of everything else.
