laurie thomas started this petition to dorset county council (Dorchester town council) and

Becoming carbon net-zero as soon as possible is of the up most importance. We have to become carbon neutral not only to sustain ourselves, our friends, our families and loved ones and our local community but also to sustain our entire planet which effects every single living being and we must all contribute in anyway we can.

An investment in solar panels on all suitable positions should be imposed as well as other green energy sources such as wind. 

EPC ratings of all buildings should be increased to better the efficiency overall and lower energy consumption. 

Sustainability and climate issues should be part of the school curriculum. 

This means phasing out our dependence on fossil fuels by means of switching to a green energy supplier. This can easily be solved by using www.Uswitch.com to find a green energy supplier. A simple, immediate and effective solution. This should be made an obligation not an option. 

 

 

Electric vehicle's should be introduced to phase out polluting vehicles. Electric charging points should be available all over the town to allow for demand. This would reduce the dangerous levels of pollution in high west street which is harming everyone's health. 

Our consumption of meats and animal products has to be reduced to decrease the amount of emissions. Animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, more than the combined exhaust from all transportation. And methane is 25-100 times more destructive than CO2 on a 20 year time frame.

And the planting of trees. Trees absorb carbon dioxide (co2) therefore having a big impact of the amount of emissions being produced and the amount being absorbed. 

The use of the search engine www.Ecosia.org  is also a very simple way of making a difference globally as your searches pay for the planting of trees. (45 searches per tree). Ecosia has already planted 67,000,000 trees and this number keeps growing!
