    To be fair, this story is only about the environmental impact report, there is no news as yet reported regarding mitigations to be made to offset those impacts.

    In the USA and EU, the regulatory agencies will require specific actions on the part of the developer as part of the permitting process. Reforestation elsewhere, clean up of an environmentally damaged site, development of new environmental projects, or payment of fees (which will fund other positive enviro initiatives).

    Green Prophet will be watching for news as to how Turkey will address this loss if this project is approved for construction.

    The legal codes of all nations should be amended to include “crimes against Nature”, because that is certainly what the Turks are doing to expand their Istanbul airport. What the World needs is not more polluting jet plane traffic but less, and not less trees but many more.
