7 - Notice of Motion

To consider the following Notice of Motion to be moved by Councillor Bell and seconded by Councillor Learney (Report CL60 (white paper) in the Council Minute Book, refers):-"This Council notes,1.  Climate change predictions show that without severe cuts in greenhouse gas emissions, increased temperatures will affect agriculture and water availability and bring more extreme weather events. These changes will affect all of us and poorest countries the worst.2.  That under current commitments the UK is due to cut emissions by 34% by 2020. It is hoped that negotiations at Copenhagen will lead to stricter commitments. Climate change scientists advise that cuts of 10% a year are needed to avert the worst consequences of climate change.3.  To ensure a breakthrough at the Copenhagen conference that may save our planet from the worst effects of climate change, Ministers need to know that people in their countries are behind them.4. A number of Councils have signed up to the "10:10 campaign" which seeks to get individuals and organisations to make a firm commitment to reduce their carbon emissions by 10% during 2010.This Council believes that it is possible to achieve this target with the right degree of political will, and that it is important to show its commitment to making these emission reductions.This Council therefore resolves to sign up to the 10:10 campaign and make a firm commitment to reduce its emissions as measured for National Indicator 185 (minus outsourced emissions) by 10 percent between the end of 2009 and the end of 2010.”
