We Demand A Climate And Biodiversity Emergency Status In County Waterford!
We hope that Waterford County Council, will follow similar footsteps and declare a climate and biodiversity emergency. Especially as County Waterford, is one of the worst offenders for unnecessary tree felling and illegal hedge cutting.
We feel that they are not doing enough to update farmers and other members of the council and public, about the benefits of wildflower meadows, keeping hedges untrimmed during nesting and mating seasons, and the complete and utter need for trees to be maintained no matter what, in this climate we now live in.
We have 10 years left before we have done irreversible damage to the planet. It is an extreme emergency, that needs to be resolved now. And the council could have a huge part to play in helping solve it.
We demand that they declare this vital headline, and set out a clear action plan of what they will do.
Why is this important?
This is extremely important because of our climate crisis. If they continue to ignore new found evidence and scientific research, that has been pressing us for decades to listen. Then it won't lead to anywhere good. We need to be able to look our children in the eyes and know that their future is safe. Because as it stands, it is not.
How it will be delivered
We plan to take this petition to Waterford Council offices and demand a meeting face to face, with employees there.
