Politicians urged to declare 'climate crisis' in Guernsey

This post was originally published on this site

Climate change protesters are campaigning outside the States Assembly building in Guernsey.

They want politicians to declare a “climate crisis” and create a climate action plan by the start of next year.

Under plans put forward the Committee for the Environment and Infrastructure, the States will develop a climate change policy and ‘Climate Change Action Plan’ by May 2020.

Deputy Lindsay De Sausmarez wants the States to go further and agree that climate change has reached a critical point and that Guernsey must urgently address the climate and ecological crisis.

We want to see strong action with ambitious targets set, and a clear declaration that this is an emergency so nobody is left in any doubt about the severity of the situation.

– Extinction Rebellion Guernsey

Over 20 people are protesting for climate change action outside the States Assembly.
