Paris climate agreement signed
WinACC Chair Tony Stoller writes: “The Paris Accord on climate change is a terrific achievement. For 195 countries to agree that action is essential and urgent is truly encouraging. It reflects the efforts of citizens across the world – including here in Winchester and district – to make it clear to our governments that we expect them to understand and to act.
“Of course, Paris on its own isn’t nearly enough. We all need to continue and redouble our work to make sure that what has been said is now done; at every level, local, national and international. Only then do we have a chance to build on what was agreed in Paris, and see real actions follow fine words.”
So now the work begins
