Come on really? A group convening itself in alte 2018 calling itself CLIMATE LEADERS. If the members of this group were CLIMATE LEADERS, we would have had action by now. An action plan, a city turning its consumption around. Green business.  Maybe if it was called the Climate Followers Coalition we could all be part of it, like a public movement, we could all feel involved, and maybe we even could be! Crazy. Maybe it could be a bit less a PRIMATE chest beating, exclusive privilege to be...

The website administrators should invest time, expertise, and thinking now in making CLIMATEAKL.CO.NZ the vibrant and active website it needs to be if it is going to fulfil the role it is intended to fulfil. WE need more traffic, more people, more ideas...   But more importantly we need more interaction, from each other, and from the owners. Cr Hulse has a video on the homepage, so where is she in this website? where is her voice, her response, and that of others on the inside of...

If - 5000 Auckland University students 2000 AUT students 20000 Ministry of Education students 4000 Council staff 2000 government officials use public transport each day, lets have a contribution to get the fares down. We all benefit from better fares on public transport, and we all lose traction on climate change as fares go up. Its all around the wrong way. Gold card retirees travel free, but are in the generations who drove fossil fuel consumption to new heights. Youth and...

We support the CEO of AT in his choice of the word "transformation". In terms of Auckland Transport, it's useful to look at the definition of the word in The Business Dictionary: "In an organizational context, a process of profound and radical change that orients an organization in a new direction and takes it to an entirely different level of effectiveness. Unlike 'turnaround' (which implies incremental progress on the same plane) transformation implies a basic change of character and...

NZ's transport carbon emissions are low-hanging fruit, if we design ways to reduce the need for private car travel. To enable Aucklanders to live without cars, some changes are needed to our national networks, and these changes can benefit populations throughout the country too. We need to establish regional rail and regional bus services to decrease private car trips that Aucklanders (and others) make to and within the region. Having options to travel for holidays, education, sports...

I guess what we all have to do, is what is "unpopular", or inconvenient to short term capitalistic goals. At least that's what this 15 year old girl speaking to the UN plenary is telling world leaders.  We, and especially our political leaders, need to become "unafraid" of unpopularity in the present for bold, courageous actions, so that our kids, like Greta, and my three year old son, can enjoy the future.   https://youtu.be/HzeekxtyFOY

The Internal combustion engine and the coal fired power station lie behind most aspects of human life these days, from food production, to cloths, to travel, to heavy industry. Every year co2 production increases, at a world level, as more people go "high tech". "green initiatives" are generally mere green wash.  My idea is that we move away from this energy intensive economy to a much more low tech one which relies on the physical labour of humans for its energy inputs. A side benefit is...

Everything in Auckland currently seems to be focused around planning for continued population growth.  There needs to be a strategic conversation in Auckland (and New Zealand... and globally) around what the city's target or sustainable population should be. Once this is decided Auckland Council should incorporate this into all of its planning.  Population growth like Auckland is currently experiencing is no compatible with reducing the city's carbon footprint and adapting to climate change...

Define clear legislation and bylaws and consenting rules around Tiny Houses. Consult with the growing community of Tiny House builders and dwellers. It is currently unclear on whether a Tiny House needs a building consent or not, the rules are too grey, because they have not been updated with Tiny Houses in mind. This is a real and valid option that needs solution focused support.

There needs to be on going educational campaigns to help people understand where all there plastic is going and the impact it has on the earth and every individual has to do their part. This list is very long but you will get the idea. Supermarkets and retail shops need to get on board. Vegies wrap in plastic, non recycle meat trays and wrapped in gladwrap, toilet paper wrapped in plastic, bread, most childrens food comes in tiny snack size wrappers (buy bulk and put in containers),...
