We moved near the Avondale market in 2007. Getting around on Sundays it was immediately obvious that unless road layout and driver + pedestrian behaviour changed, there would be a serious accident. A few years later there was and a pedestrian was killed.  Now our region wide transport system is changing. Cyclists are increasingly darting through slow or stationary traffic creating risks for themselves, pedestrians, and drivers. Scooters and motorbikes are doing the same. Both two wheel...

If food waste and food transport are as significant as some say in contributing to our whanau carbon footprints, then lets make sure there are quality supported community gardens in every Local Board area and at every school. Plant it, grow it, eat it, compost it. Meet people, build communities.

This is part response to Greater Auckland's great idea about housing in car parks, but partly also just a bit of an old school classic in terms of climate change ideas.  As we pump up public transport capacity we want it filled. Driving to the local major transport hub is not the ultimate good here, but its not bad... but there needs to be room.  Two things: (1) our current park and rides don't enough capacity, and in many urban areas increased use of train stations has resulted in the...

In December we heard the headline "Global recognition for Auckland leadership on climate action"... But to be honest I just don't know what this leadership is, was or who did it. There was talk last year that Auckland was recognised for the potential indigenous leadership on climate change, but there wasn't any evidence of the space provided for indigenous leadership on climate change, or of the recognition itself, from C40. On the basis of the evidence I am able to find, I don't believe...

10 times more bikes means cheaper bikes, better bikes, subsidies for bikes, more bikes on the road or cycleway or track, and that means SAFER CYCLING. Electric is good, leg power is good, cycleways are good, good road manners are good, staying safe is good. being active is good. 10 times more motor-scooters means more scooters, a bigger range available, some impact on car sales and car fleet increases, and SAFER SCOOTERING. 1. Explore options to increase importation of appropriate...

Create a forum where vehicle importers and commercial users are invited to discuss their planning to provide for a carbon neutral fleet. If we are still importing private passenger vehicles with high fossil consumption (say, over 7l/100km), in 2020, we aren't going to be getting anywhere. There is an option for regulation here, but there is also a moral obligation on importers to help us reach the goals we collectively need to reach. I think both are probably needed, but if we provide a...

Auckland Council and other entities such as the CEO climate change group put together a meaningful programme of climate change related events that garner public input and support and provide a meaningful mid and long term programme of activity within which humans and primates can find their own place in climate change discourse, and change activation. 1. Global climate protest day 15 March (#Greta Thunberg). Council has 8 - 10 k employers - what will they be doing on March 15? 2....

In December 2018 Auckland Council's Environment and Community Committee received a report promising continued progress toward the Auckland Climate Action Plan and the Auckland Climate Symposium. Climate Primate submitted an request to speak to the committee, and this was turned down on pretty esoteric grounds that are not canvassed in the committee's terms of reference published in their agenda - that a request to provide public input can be refused on the grounds that the subject matter...

The fight against CLIMATE CHANGE has so far involved humans/primates using precious material which causes climate change, while hoping, assuming, and in most cases believing that a global leadership of political entities was managing the risk of CLIMATE CHANGE effectively. That global leadership was not managing the risk of CLIMATE CHANGE effectively. In 2019 - the international year of climate action - local body elections in many countries globally including New Zealand provide the...

A climate ready Auckland (among other things) has public funding (Auckland Council resources) set aside specifically to meet the costs of infrastructure damage which will continue to increase exponentially from now until ... well forever, based on the changing weather patterns we are experiencing today. How much does your council have in the war chest? Auckland Council should tell us, and tell us how that fund will grow ahead of the growing cost of repairs as climate change impact...
