Carbon Neutral by 2023
A report was brought to Council this week that outlined the cities carbon neutrality by 2030. After on failed motion and a failed amendment the Council agreed to become carbon neutral by 2023. This can be achieved by purchasing carbon credits. The report was detailed and outlines what the Council can do to reduce its own footprint and how carbon credits would be needed to ever achiev carbon neutrality. The fact is it is impossible to plant the number of trees needed and we have now here to plant them even by 2030. This will also involve working with residents to encourage each of them to reduce waste and live more simply as well as planting trees/evgetation in their own backyards.
