'A veritable 'vade mecum' of the sins of the aviation industry, with the references all lined up standing at attention. Indeed if the aviation bosses were in court with you as the prosecuting counsel, they would all receive long terms in prison' -- Brendon Sewill, author of 'Tangled Wings: Gatwick seen through green-tinted glasses', and chair of the Gatwick Area Conservation Campaign 'A treasure trove that will shock and surprise with much jaw dropping material about the rapidly expanding and much subsidised world of airports, air travel and freight and their impact on climate change, biofuel demand, and much more' -- Geoff Tansey, writer, Joseph Rowntree Visionary for a Just and Peaceful World, Trustee of Food Ethics Council 'There is a lot more at stake in arguments about aviation than appears at first sight. This book is a guide to the wider issues: how airports shape food supply, international trade flows, government bailouts, and the future of the climate' -- Prof. Victor Anderson, Global Sustainability Institute, Anglia Ruskin University 'At the cutting edge of understanding new perspectives on Green economics. A massively helpful contribution to the literature on aviation, and industry in general, giving valuable insight into how we all end up paying for the follies of large industrial concerns and networks' -- Miriam Kennet, Director of the Green Economics Institute 'Truly comprehensive in its global perspective and illustrates the stark reality of the impact of the rapid growth in aviation' -- Liz Mason, Teaching Fellow in International Business, Leeds University 'The air industry is a huge lobby but Rose Bridger has produced a book that punctures their dangerous lies' -- Derek Wall, International coordinator of the Green Party of England and Wales
