Jaw, Jaw Not War, War?

On Saturday the British Airline Pilots' Association called for talks with the Heathrow demonstrators from the 'Camp for Climate Action.' "We would like to come to a common understanding about carbon dioxide emissions from aircraft," said Captain Mervyn Granshaw, chairman of the BALPA trade union. A Camp spokesman rejected the BALPA offer for talks.
"We're more than happy to discuss the science of climate change with anybody, but right now we're caught up planning for tomorrow's direct action."

A few hundred people demonstrate and BALPA want to talk to them....I think in their answer you get just how much good it would do
