UK court blocks Heathrow expansion over climate concerns

The Heathrow Airport’s plan to increase its capacity by 50% by adding a third runway to the transport hub has been ruled illegal by a UK court of appeal on the grounds that the plan do not take into account the country’s climate change commitments under the Paris Agreement. The government can appeal the decision, but has so far declined to do so according to the judge.
