Mission Against Emissions Song and Video

Hazel Thompson has created this fantastic little song and video detailing the reasons why we should reject the airport expansion. Super work!

The lyrics:

We don’t need more LBA Already got enough planes We know that change has got to come So we’re going to stop the jet planes Can’t stand for an expansion We’ll be the change that’s got to come


For there’s no use demanding we keep on expanding to bring in more smog to our skies.

Even if it’s nice to fly like the birds all the time we cannot stand the noise.

Of extended flight hours this time isn’t yours to infiltrate and compromise

All the light sleepers, night workers, birds and creatures all need a bit of still in the night.


We don’t need more LBA

Already got enough planes

We know that change has got to come

So we’re going to stop the jet planes

Can’t stand for an expansion

We’ll be the change that’s got to come


The council has committed 200 million to half emissions by 2030

We cannot stand to simply watch you expand with a plan than does not guarantee

To cut pollutants, without plans to restructure and develop infrastructure of our roads

With the traffic then heaving the next pandemic could be leaving across country through the skies

So please understand Our mission we just want to stop emissions

The air of Leeds/Bradford land Is polluted enough without your planned additions


We don’t need more LBA

Already got enough planes

We know that change has got to come

So we’re going to stop the jet planes

Can’t stand for an expansion

We’ll be the change that’s got to come
