SO what does it take to be a member of the Climate Leaders Coalition. How do we know  this is not a scam in which business leaders tell Auckland they have it all in hand, so we can stand down. Criteria would be a useful tool, so we can understand the leadership commitments are real. Some innovation in the ideas would also a good pointer that the coalition is just doing what we all should have been doing for, oh, say around 15 years, and 15 years too late. Not evidence, just some rules to...

The North Western Motorway currently provides an infrastructure for an efficient Future Business LINK... a high functioning transport link from the PORT, to PARNELL, to K ROAD, to PT CHEV, to AVONDALE, to HENDERSON, and WESTGATE could include housing and industry, bus lanes not more car lanes, bike lanes and light rail.  Lincoln Road is currently 16 minutes from the CBD, when there is no traffic. in traffic it is a nightmare. What if Pt Chev became an urban commercial space directly...

The Southern Cross Climate Group is part think tank, part gorilla action, and part collaboration between Wellington, Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland. It is currently gathering a specialist/analyst in each of those centres to start feeding local information and initiatives form their own jurisdictions into this feed. We need to build a comparative framework, so we don't end up with these geographically close cities all being at vastly different places in terms fo climate action and progress....

The energy needs of Auckland's transport network must reduce even as we become more populous. The compact city strategy, plus investment in lower-energy modes such as walking, cycling, and public transport is vital. Auckland Council has not successfully prevented helicopters being used for reasons of personal luxury, yet these machines are energy-intense, and create both noise and danger for the public. Meanwhile, some companies are pushing other energy-intensive technology, such as Uber Air...

Currently there is no choice to live in a car free suburb. Perhaps in time, existing suburbs could vote to become car-free, or at least make changes so they are not dominated by the car. Until the political will to stop sprawling onto yet more farmland is achieved, we should at least be developing those new suburbs in a way that offers the choice Auckland doesn't currently have. People are generally wanting to live in established urban areas which offer proximity to amenities, not at the...

As  climate change quickens, pressure comes on, we must all work hard to resist the dark side of our human natures, as WB Yeats informs us. Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity.

With Te Kawa o te Uruwera http://www.ngaituhoe.iwi.nz/te-kawa-o-te-urewera Ngai Tuhoe have ushered in a new era, positioning themselves truly as Kaitiaki of Te Uruwera. We can learn from this precedent and recognise parts of Auckland as legal persons, under the protection of their customary Kaitiaki. And we can join in partnership with them Tāmati Kruger's vision is for all of us to be Tangata Whenua, and Kaitiaki of the land. But while the land belongs to the crown and to individuals,...

My ideas for protecting peoples health and well being, including natural locations from climate change range from temperature and disease control because these were the foundation factors for my three chosen ideas. -Water purifiers is one of my main chosen ideas to directly deal with aspects of the issue and to help improve a communities health and well being, like schools or general homes. This is to prevent disease from infecting people of all ages mainly to help kids and the elderly...

I think that more people need to know about the issues of climate change as well as how they will be affected. A lot of people still believe that it is a problem for future generations, but the future is now. In preparation for a natural disaster, a website could be created where the community can submit reports of damages and such. This could show the areas that are safe or unsafe to go to, or whether certain schools / public areas are open or closed because of a storm or disaster. People...
