Auckland Council’s departing sustainability officer has some hard truths about the lack of action on climate change.
"John Mauro said the council and community needed courage and ambition to make better progress, but there was a trend towards "show-ponying"." - Stuff
It was great to get the declaration of an emergency but we need to do something. We don't have the time or money to waste - we need real Climate Action now. Another six years of buying diesel buses is worse than inaction, it's creating more emissions and pollution.
Auckland Council must direct Auckland Transport and all the Council Controlled Organisations to present realistic, practical but ambitious plans to address climate change (both mitigation and adaption) and then make them happen.
