OPEN LETTER: My public reply to a local Lead Councillor’s response on our concern (RE:RE: ltr-carl emerson-dam – reading climate change strategy) – December 7, 2016
From our Lead Councillor’s response to our concern I feel uncomfortable with Reading Borough Council’s strategy on Climate Change. It is a thin response and requires anyone with climate competence to step up and deliver a proper and adequate response to why the two reports below from Strategic Environment, Planning & Transport Committee 23-NOV-2016 are not effectively engaging with current risks and are simply disengaged from their core task? Especially with regards to all committee meetings since 4th November!
NB: The Paris Agreement was formalised on the 18th December 2015. It has entered force on the 4th November 2016 and is now bound into Law of Treaty. The UK government ratified the agreement on the 18th November 2016.
Therefore I published Climate Change Centre Reading’s full response here;
