The Guardian view on Britains aviation addiction, as Boris Johnsons airport plan gets turned down | Editorial 3.9.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
The London mayors Thames estuary plan always lacked seriousness but so does an entire debate which ignores the carbon costs of flying Mr Johnsons estuary proposal, as it is never described, has loomed large in the aviation debate, despite its abject lack of seriousness. Londons mayor put forward an entirely new airport on the Isle of Grain, which would cost five to 10 times as much as expanding Heathrow. The technocratic Airports Commission were bound to reject it, although they chickened out of quite saying so to Boris Johnson last year, agreeing to give his pet project one final look, even as they dropped it from the shortlist . Yesterday, adding new arguments about birdlife and the sheer dislocation of moving the capitals main airport 70 miles to their original cost concerns, they finally gave the formal thumbs down . Mr Johnson was having none of it insisting his scheme was not dead at all , because in the end it will not be for Sir Howard Davies and his commissioners to decide, but instead for the ...

Put a price on nature? We must stop this neoliberal road to ruin 24.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
The failure of the markets hasn't stopped the rise of the gobbledygook-filled Nature Capital Agenda. We can This is the transcript of George Monbiot's SPERI Annual Lecture, hosted by the Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute at the University of Sheffield. Ladies and gentlemen, we are witnessing the death of both the theory and the practice of neoliberal capitalism. This is the doctrine which holds that the market can resolve almost all social, economic and political problems. It holds that people are best served, and their prosperity is best advanced, by the minimum of intervention and spending by the state. It contends that we can maximise the general social interest through the pursuit of self-interest. "[the government] is a self-seeking flea on the backs of the more productive people of this world. ... governments do not run countries, they parasitize them." Look, we are failing spectacularly to protect the natural world and we are failing because people arent valuing it enough. Companies ...
