Glasgow conference is important to the Peninsula

Peninsula residents are very familiar with the impacts of climate change.

Residents live with issues such as extraction from the borefield, coastal erosion and the heat island effect.

School staff and students live with outdoor covered areas, a feature of school character unknown to my generation.

Do school students realise our environment has changed in a very short time?

If climate change continues without drastic action, present and certainly future school students will be forced to adapt to more changes than will be addressed by a covered outdoor area.

The Peninsula Leisure Centre is another example of change.

The former outdoor swimming centre did not have roof structures.

It would be an interesting exercise to travel around the Peninsula identifying changes to address the impacts of climate change.

Community groups are well ahead of the council in this regard and should be congratulated.

Climate change action has been simmering for too long without decisive forward movement.

For these reasons and more, the climate change conference in Glasgow is important to all Peninsula residents and the Peninsula itself.

I believe this conference is the last opportunity to take action on greenhouse gas emissions before climate change chain reactions begin, beyond control.
