Hornsby Council Climate Emergency Petition

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


We, the people of Hornsby Shire, want Hornsby Council to declare a climate emergency. Once declared, the council must enforce policies that will reduce emissions as much as possible. They must also educate the public about the state of emergency.

1. In February 2016, global temperatures spiked to well over 1.35°C above pre-industrial times, just weeks after the Paris Climate Agreement set an aim of not exceeding 1.5°C. Climate scientists say that we are facing a climate emergency, and that the future of ecosystems and human civilization now hang in the balance. Our Great Barrier Reef is dying as the oceans heat up and recent fires in Tasmania burned ancient world-heritage forests.

2. Declaring a climate emergency is a vital step in building support for the very large changes required to restore a safe climate.

Save us from a climate crisis, before it’s too late. Declare a climate emergency, today.
