Please join us to
celebrate six years
of climate work
at our AGM
Thursday June 8, 7.00pm
Our guest speakers are OCD team member Joanna Santa Barbara and her colleague Meila Picard. They are working with members of the Nelson Tasman Climate Forum using calculations and a modelling tool to help communities solve those most vexed climate questions – how fast do we have to reduce emissions and which ones need our maximum effort.
The most startling conclusion of their work is the simple figure of 8% per year. That’s the rate at which every region in Aotearoa needs to reduce emissions if we are to keep the global heating rate to less than 1.5 degrees Celsius - starting from NOW!
“We need national emissions targets and budgets, and the Climate Change Commission and Government present these to us, based on IPCC global targets,” says Joanna. “But it’s hard to translate these into an ordinary household’s processes or even into local council level targets.”
