The local Green Party claims that Bucks Council is pulling back on commitment to climate change
The Buckinghamshire Council have proposed a Climate Change Motion which will be discussed at the full council meeting on Wednesday, 15th July. The motion will propose a target date of 2050 for net zero carbon for the Council's activities rather than the more ambitious target set by AVDC and most other councils.
Green Councillor, David Lyons, believes that this is too late and that the target for the Council's activities should be net zero carbon by 2030. He is therefore proposing an amendment to the motion.
Recent events have shown that climate is getting increasingly unpredictable. It is affecting areas of the world like Siberia where carbon has been locked up for many thousands of years in the permafrost and is now being released by warmer temperatures. David believes that, for the sake of our children and grandchildren, we cannot risk delaying our response to climate change any longer and he is urging residents to email their councillors to ask for rapid action.
