Cross-Party Committee on Carbon Neutrality

It has come to my attention that Transition Town Thames are having a public meeting with Scott Simpson as guest next Tuesday to discuss the report on pathways to NZ being carbon neutral by 2050. It will be at the Civic Centre at 7.30pm.

This is an excellent initiative by T3 to get the issue in the open locally. And Scott will provide an excellent foil to open the discussion on a wide front having now been appointed associate Minister for the Environment.

I am normally a sceptic of Government intentions in dealing with these issues - they have shown little enthusiasm to date, and some of the statements that have emanated from Scott's colleagues in the past have certainly given no cause to think this attitude is about to change.

But let us give them the benefit of the doubt and front up to take part in the discussion on Tuesday. Anything that has cross-party support has my support, and this looks particularly worthwhile.

Try and get there!

Hi Bill, I see that in the 'What's On' column of the Hauraki Herald (HH), the meeting is set for 7pm - rather than 7.30pm referred to in your post. I am not involved in arranging the meeting, so I don't know if the HH is correct! Probably best to be there at 7. Thanks, Tim.
