Climate change challenges will require a joined up approach, the leader of Lichfield District Council has warned.

Cllr Doug Pullen made his comments after a meeting with Staffordshire County Council’s Cabinet support member for climate change and sustainability, Cllr Conor Wileman.

The duo discussed the challenges facing both authorities, as well as discussing their views on some of the key issues including air quality, carbon emissions and bio-diversity.

The meeting came after Staffordshire County Council declared a climate change emergency.

Cllr Pullen said: “The meeting was productive and we have agreed to converse regularly on how the two councils can work together to ensure maximum impact.”

  1. Nice to think you are doing something to save the planet. The reality is that unless you can encourage China, India, America and others to do the same the climate will continue to become more unstable. Our global (ie GB) output of CO2 (and other gasses) amounts to about 2% of the total. If we could reduce that to nothing (unlikely) it would still have no impact. The third world is also taking the stance that we have benefited from the Industrial Revolution so why deny them their chance? Vast sums of money in compensation have been mentioned. Eventually fossil fuels will run out. Until then (which will probably be too late) the prospects are that life on our planet will become very difficult indeed. What is really reqired is a quantum leap in clean energy production. Another thought could be that the self limiting effect of over population is bringing about our own downfall because we are polluting the planet in so many ways. It can only be countered if all the people of the world will take this seriously.
