Thanet Council are due to support the Nottingham Declaration. This is the top local authority acknowledgment that Climate Change exists and needs to be addressed. It is disappointing that 340 local authorities have already signed, so Thanet is one of the last to do so..
The Nottingham Declaration recognises the central role of local authorities in leading society's response to the challenge of climate change. By signing the Declaration councils pledge to systematically address the causes of climate change and to prepare their community for its impacts. You can find out more about the declaration here.
How can Thanet be systematically addressing climate change by promoting an Air Show? The Margate Big Event is on 20/21 June and will see thousands of pounds of our money being spent glamourising planes and flying. When Cllr. Sandy Ezekiel signs to support the Nottingham Declaration, surely he will immediately be breaking it?
