Tories think climate change crisis can wait until 2050

November 30, 2020 9:56 AM

2050 is the date when Buckinghamshire Council has decided the council can become carbon-free. Chesham Town Council agreed to a proposal from Lib Dem councillors Alan Bacon and Mohammad Fayyaz to become carbon-free by 2030, twenty years earlier, but the Tories at Buckinghamshire Council don't see any need to rush. Neither scientific warnings, nor melting ice in the Arctic and Antarctic nor extreme weather events worldwide seems able to dent the complacency. Liberal Democrats on Buckinghamshire Council will aim to:

  • Assess the impact on the climate and environment of all council activities and functions across all policy areas.
  • Prioritise Climate Change as a key factor in all decision making.
  • Immediately start making changes where clear, tried and tested solutions exist.
  • Research and develop solutions for more challenging areas.
  • Mobilise the public to create meaningful change in the county.
  • Create the organisational structures necessary to deliver these pledges
