European Courts are nitwits also.

Climate change worries halt Vienna airport's third runway
A court in Austria has blocked construction of a third runway in Vienna on the basis of increased CO2 emissions. The idiocy of such a decision is breathtaking. Will this reduce the number of people coming? No! Will the number of planes be reduced ? No! Will travelers be inconvenienced? Yes!
These legal morons are denying the reality of modern air travel .
The Local in Austria has the story:
A court has blocked Vienna airport's plans for a third runway saying it would have resulted in greater greenhouse gas emissions, in a verdict described by lawyers as a first.
Austria's Federal Administrative Court said in a ruling published late on Thursday that the "positive aspects of the project cannot justify the high extra carbon dioxide pollution."
A third runway would result in a "significant" rise in greenhouse gas output, contravening the country's domestic and international undertakings to reduce emissions, a statement said.
"The airport's possibilities to reduce CO2 emissions through its own measures (such as the installation of solar panels and changing its vehicles to electric cars) were insufficient," it added.
"As far as I know this is unique that climate protection is used as an argument to block a concrete plan," Christian Schmelz, a lawyer for the airport, told the newspaper Die Presse.
Erika Wagner, head of the Environmental Law Institute at Linz University, called it a "landmark ruling".
