Not a moment to lose with climate emergency
I'm writing in response to comments by Rod Blake in edition 475 (Planned retreat not understood, says residents' group).
Mr Blake clearly fails to understand that Council has removed the words "planned retreat" from their Climate Change Policy.
Those two words do not exist as part of that policy.
Council has made a responsible decision to frame their future actions and decisions within the reality of climate change, for the long-term benefit of residents.
Indeed, I would like to see Council take it one step further and declare a Climate Emergency to join the other 30 Australian Councils, representing roughly three million people and 12 per cent of the population, who have declared a climate emergency so far.
I implore Peninsula residents concerned about the legacy being left for their children and grandchildren to support action on climate change from their own household, local community, through to Council and the other levels of government.
There is not a moment to lose.
