I tuned in and watched council's meeting on 17 March 2021 and would like to thank PMHC for broadcasting the meeting and the transparency it brings to all ratepayers and residents.
I stayed with the broadcast finding it to be informative and interesting. Item 10 was what I had tuned in to hear. PMHC declares global climate emergency.
After 15 months of lobbying with various environmental groups and at considerable cost to ratepayers, PMHC proposes this and adopts this policy at this meeting.
What a joke to use a public meeting to platform for a global climate emergency. Where are the priorities. Should they not be quality and adequate flouridated water supply, sewerage treatment plants that function and safely get rid of treated sewage to cater for our ever-growing population, safe roads and bridges and functioning affordable power as pointed out by our Mayor Peta Pinson.
What a waste of our time and money. Not even Mr Green himself state environment minister Matt Kean can get NSW state government to declare a global climate emergency and the federal government are not going to go there.
We all accept that renewables are world wide and the way of the future but for them to be accepted they have to work and be cost effective not just make us feel good. So again I say to PMHC, if the state government and the federal government aren't onboard who is going to pay for this?
Yep you got it, you the ratepayer.
