Action on Climate Change

Achieving a net zero carbon, resilient future for Surrey will be a major challenge  and it requires collective action on climate change from everyone. We all have great potential to do this, with almost three quarters of all emissions coming from the way we travel and running the homes we live in.

This site will foster a co-design approach to tackling climate change, by providing a platform for open discussion on this issue. Over time the site will develop to provide support and guidance to residents and businesses to enable you to take action on this issue as well.

  • 2050 is too late
  • The key part of the strategy is the ASKS of the Government. Please detail how this will be achieved. Surrey MPs are not behind the strategy and are not driving these Asks. None of them have signed the CEE bill
  • Horse Hill, Dunsfold make a mockery of this strategy
  • Surrey Pension Fund refusal to divest their fossil fuel shares says it all. SCC , as the Administrating Authority, should insist they divest
  • Where is the integration with Local Authorities climate emergency plans
  • The whole strategy needs public engagement. This is a start but will you publish a summary of the feedback and will you take action on it. If, as I suspect, respondents are critical of the strategy, will you take action. If not, expect continuing opposition and disengagement. YOU HAVE TO ACT ON FEEDBACK – otherwise don’t ask for it.

Surrey CC enabling and encouraging acidisation makes a mockery of this entire policy… Water is the most important resource on Earth, and as a council you are facilitating UKOG in various locations within the county. You should be encouraging Green technology, that does not harm the environment…

A Net Zero Carbon Emissions target is a complete nonsense. Let me give my reasons. The UK’s emissions are c. 1% of the global total. It is estimated that it will cost us c. £1tn to achieve it. But, none of the major emitters care a fig about reducing emissions. Thus, we will simply bankrupt ourselves for no good reason.
Plus, if you do the reading, it’s quite clear, in any event, (1) that global climate change is nowhere near as significant as Greta’s gang would have us believe and (2) that CO2 has little part to play in what change there is.

Do not allow oil/gas exploration and development We should be looking toward investment from and in renewable and sustainable energy sources, not allowing backward looking private companies to destroy ecosystems and local people’s health searching for remnants of an energy source that will most likely be defunct by the end of this decade.
