As we have previously reported in May 2019 the PCC consider a notice of motion relating to climate change. Point 1 – Declaring a Climate Emergency went to the vote and was approved. Point 4 – Call on WG and UK Governments to provide the necessary support and resources to enable effective carbon reductions was also approved. Points 2, 3, 5 & 6 were referred to the corporate overview and Scrutiny committee.
We are asking members to contact their councillors and urge them to support the doubling of tree cover in Pembrokeshire.
Energy company, Eni UK Ltd, has applied to the UK government to carry out a geological survey, which involves firing loud shock waves out of a submerged gun, between 1st June and 30th September.
We are delighted to announce that following objections from many quarters and across the political divide we have received a letter confirming the licences have been suspended.
This is a great victory but PLEASE sign our petition to The Rt Hon Greg Clark MP. Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy demanding these plans are not just suspended but scrapped.
The Fight goes on
Friends of the Earth has said it will appeal against the ruling by judges to dismiss five legal challenges to expansion at Heathrow airport.. Craig Bennett, Friends of the Earth’s chief executive, : “We are in an ecological and climate emergency and parliament have supported an outdated decision to chase climate-wrecking development. How can we take any government remotely seriously when they claim to care about climate chaos while supporting this runway?”. FOE are seeking to appeal the court's decision.
A huge thanks to all those who have taken part in this campaign. The M4 relief road is no longer a threat. Wales is safe from an extortionate road that would have damaged our climate and ruined our wildlife.
First Minister Mark Drakeford listened to your concerns and has proved that he’s treating the recent climate emergency declaration seriously.
As many of you know the PCC passed a motion to declare a climate change emergency. This is a long way from the domination of the council by supporters of the oil & gas industry when climate change denial was to the fore. However we know that in order to translate this motion into action and change we will need to keep the pressure on.
At our next meeting on Monday 3rd June in the Balcony Room Queens Hall Narberth at 7.30pm there will be a chance to discuss our next steps with Cllr vic dennis and Labour candidate Marc Tierney.
COME ALONG with your ideas and enthusiasm
