Manchester - or rather the idiots who run the place - are committing the City to a 48% reduction in carbon emissions:
The Greater Manchester Climate Change Strategy, put together by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, pulls together the various climate change plans in place across the city-region, with the aim of producing a more coordinated framework.
It outlines four headline climate change goals for Greater Manchester by 2020:
- A rapid transition to a low carbon economySo the poor residents of this once great city will be condemned to lag behind everywhere else while their leaders choose to further damage the economic prospects of Greater Manchester - and that means higher unemployment, fewer new businesses, less investment and a stagnant unresponsive economy.
- Collective carbon emissions reduced by 48 per cent
- Be prepared for and actively adapting to a rapidly changing climate
- ‘Carbon literacy’ will have become embedded into the culture of organisations, lifestyles and behaviours.
And what in the name of all that's holy is "carbon literacy"?
