To the Editor:
I read in the July Mid-county Memo (Airport futures go critical) that Portland International Airport is still seeking approval of a third runway.

It seems to me to be business as usual at the airport, despite global warming and all the questions that raises regarding airport travel. I note the Memo article pointed out that the Airport Future's Public Advisory Group is advisory only.

If a proposed third runway is, according to the Port of Portland, “not needed until decades in the future, if at all,” then why does the port insist on getting its approval on the books now? Especially when it says it will be carbon neutral by 2035?

The Memo article points out the existence of such a new runway would severely impact many Mid-county residents.
