|We acted on the fires. |
We are acting on Covid-19.
We must act on the Climate Emergency!
We have just 10 years to keep Global Warming below 1.5 degrees.
Current local plans of zero emissions by 2050 will fall far short of this. Globally, 1500 local and other governments, representing 820 million citizens in 30 countries have declared a Climate Emergency. In Australia, 84 local councils have declared a Climate Emergency. A Climate Emergency Plan will generate strategic local actions to reduce our emissions.
We call on Mitchell Shire Council to declare a Climate Emergency and plan to take bold actions to achieve net-zero emissions by 2030.
