This is the first in a series of workbooks to be published by the IDeA on climate change. It sets out key facts about climate change and presents the argument for local government to address the issue.Some may not be swayed by the acres of cherry-picked sources, of course. But never fear, eager encouragement to draw approved conclusions from the last instance of showery rain has also been included.
To benefit fully you need to think about your own approach in influencing other people.
Community leadership on climate change is a moral imperative
Councils are facing a challenging financial climate with tough decisions to make about the way in which they allocate resources to meet growing pressures. But this cannot be a reason for inaction.
Which recent weather changes have you either noticed or heard/read about that could perhaps be attributed to climate change?What more does one need to go out and get haranguing? And if this lesson is forgotten - woe betide - it's OK because "This is the first in a series".
What's that? Potholes? Bins? Litter? Schools? Yeah, councils do that boring shit too sometimes.
