In the village of Harmondsworth, the British government's decision Tuesday to back expanding London Heathrow Airport with a new third runway was welcomed like a death sentence. With its small village green fringed by pubs, a church, the post office and a red telephone box, Harmondsworth could be mistaken for being in the middle of the countryside -- were it not for the roar of the planes taking off every other minute a kilometre away. A mixture of longstanding local residents and climate change activists gathered on the green outside to vent their despair.
