Groups call to ground Wellington airport's expansion plans

From Morning Report, 6:44 am on 5 February 2021

An environmental organisation is calling for a halt to Wellington airport's expansion plans.

But Generation Zero says such growth doesn't consider the impact a bigger airport would have on the city's CO2 emissions.
