Norwich Green Party Planning to concrete over high carbon grass and dangerous trees

Green Party Climate Fraudsters demand further self-evisceration by Coalition Government. A Norwich Green Party councillor warns that the Climate Change Act is being ignored and a Government Climate watchdog needs to show it’s teeth if the UK is to meet its carbon emissions targets on transport.

Largely unknown Councillor Andrew Boswell says “The UK Climate Change Act has been on the Statute for several years now but many transport planners are effectively ignoring it. Old road schemes, which should be replaced by innovative sustainable transport, are still being developed as if the Act didn’t exist. A local example is the Norwich Northern Distributor Road. A lot of carbon could be saved if new developments are designed instead to properly cut and minimize transport emissions. The Climate Change Committee watchdog knows about the problem but it is not taking tough enough action. I am asking the committee, what action will you take?”

The Climate Change Committee watchdog estimates 2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide could be saved a year by 2020 by better planning but stated earlier this year that the right decisions are not being made locally and it needs monitoring. Councillor Boswell says this is not enough when there are deep, institutional problems that need to be tackled to solve the problem, and national magazine Local Transport Today has asked Councillor Boswell to write an article it.

Councillor Boswell’s article warns that the Country will fail to meet its climate targets if a number of systemic issues are not addressed: these include

poor democracy in Local Government, and the current inability of the planning system, and inspectors, to tackle carbon emissions in a scientific and numerical way.

Climate fraudsters are being increasingly forced on the defensive after a chain of revelations that they have consistently and deliberately lied to force their distorted views on the British.

Norwich Council has been a hotbed of climate fraudster stupidity. Amongst their more amusing actions has been consideration of cutting down all trees in public places on the grounds that people might be injured by falling seeds or slip on shed leaves.
