Moreland Council adopt a Zero Carbon Moreland target by 2030
In September 2018, Moreland City Council unanimously declared a climate emergency – recognising the threat that the climate crisis poses to our health, safety and livelihoods.
And, right now, Council has a target of zero carbon emissions across our community by 2040.
But scientists have warned that now is the time to act: what governments, businesses and communities do between now and 2030 will determine whether we limit potential climate catastrophe.
With the Federal government being left behind the rest of the world on climate action and the Victorian government refusing to transition away from coal any time soon, Moreland Council has the opportunity to lead action on the climate emergency.
Will you sign the petition calling on Moreland City Council to adopt a Zero Carbon Moreland target by 2030?
Current scientific evidence indicates:
- Global fossil CO2 emissions rose 62% between 1990 and 2019.
- The average global temperature for 2016–2020 is expected to be the warmest on record, about 1.1 °C above 1850-1900
- To limit global warming to 1.5°C the world needs to reduce emissions by 7.6% every year from 2020-2030.
- The ocean has absorbed more than 90% of the excess heat in the climate system.
- Arctic summer sea-ice extent has declined at a rate of approximately 12% per decade during 1979-2018.
