The number two of Junts per Cat in the elections and the deputy in the Parliament, Joan Canadell, is in favor of expanding the El Prat airport, but the reason is most unusual. Canadell assures in a long reflection on his social networks that said works the airport will be amortized “Before being inundated by climate change”.

According to Joan Canadell, the Catalonia 2022 Working Group for the expansion of El Prat met weeks ago, made up of some 30 independent experts who came to Parliament and insisted that “politicians have to follow the culture of data and evaluation for decision-making” .

In this sense, the pro-independence deputy assures that he has sought information and “the airport is 2 meters above sea level. [sobre el nivel del mar] and the worst forecast of the UN International Panel of Experts is a rise 1.1 meters in 2100 ».

It is for this reason that he understands that there would be no problem in carrying out the expansion of the airport infrastructure planned by the Generalitat and financed by the Government of Sánchez, since “an investment such as that of the airport will be amortized in much less”, referring to the changes that will cause climate change.

To give weight to his argument, Canadell quotes a “biologist and advocate of climate change 30 years ago”, of whom he does not give the name. According to the deputy, this expert maintains that the concern “is not the destruction of protected ecosystems or the environmental issue, but only to ensure that the rise in sea level due to the effects of climate change does not flood the airport before amortizing the investment” .

Something that, according to Canadell’s calculations based on the IPCC report, would be fulfilled in the case of Barcelona’s El Prat airport, which is very close to the Mediterranean coast.
