    Councillor Jane Brophy's Climate Emergency speech at 1 hours 34 minutes:

    Scientists have been warning us for decades that Climate Change is the greatest threat to humanity for thousands of years.

    The continuing emission of greenhouse gases and resulting global warming overshadows every other political issue.

    Councillor Jane Brophy's Fracking speech at 2 hours 14 minutes:

    Fracking speech

    This motion reaffirms Trafford's opposition to Fracking.

    It is now very clear that consequences of fracking will be harmful for our borough, our region and our planet.

    Fracking is a harmful distraction from investment in clean and renewable energy.

    Councillor Jane Brophy's Badger speech at 2 hours 14 minutes:

    Culling badgers is not only cruel it is flawed.

    Here in Trafford I believe we must completely oppose it.

    Bovine TB is a problem for cattle, not wildlife.

    Nearly all infections are transmitted between cattle and only a tiny number come from badgers.

    The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) has myopically decided to support May's miserable Brexit Agreement with the European Union (EU). In so doing they have opted to sacrifice longer-term certainty for the seeming short-term certainty of a deal which at best delays a regulatory cliff-edge for just two years, and holds out the promise of trade deals inferior to what we enjoy now as a member of the EU.

    Seconded by Councillor Damian O'Brien
    Wednesday 28th November 2018

    Third runway at Heathrow

    1. Council assembly notes:
    a. The recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report detailing the urgency of alleviating the extent and rapidity of man-made climate change.
    b. That aviation is a major worldwide contributer to man-made climate change.
    c. That the expansion of Heathrow airport by building a third runway is targeted at securing Heathrow's status as a hub for international connecting flights rather than in response to demand from London residents.
    d. That the planned third runway will mean more than 250,000 additional flights into Heathrow a year.

    Liberal Democrat European Group (LDEG) Chair, Nick Hopkinson, wrote again to his local newspaper arguing Theresa May's deal is bad for Britain and demanding a People's Vote.

    If you haven't already done so, please write to your MP. If you are pressed for time, it takes only a minute by clicking on https://www.notbuyingit.uk It's even more powerful if you can refer your MP to a letter you have had published recently in the local media.

    Climate Change isn't just an environmental problem, it's a human one too.

    Climate Change isn't just an environmental problem, it's a human one too.

    Look at our country - and the impact of weather extremes likely linked to climate change. This summer, Manchester's Moorlands were turned into an inferno. Food prices spiked as farmers struggled in an unseasonal heatwave. Back in March, parts of the country were brought to a standstill with massive snowfalls from the Beast from the East.

    As both an advocate and a practitioner of Community Politics it has never ceased to amaze me that as both a Party and as Green Liberal Democrats we have overlooked either the most important or the second most important community in most people's lives - the workplace community.

    Why aren't we looking for opportunities to utilise community politics in the workplace not so much to promote the Liberal Democrats or the Green Liberal Democrats but to share and promote our core principles and policies?

  • Ed Davey and Mary Page at Bristol Lib Dems November 2018 (greenlibdems.org.uk)
    Article: Nov 26, 2018

    Ten years ago, the Climate Change Act was a radical piece of legislation - made more radical by Lib Dem input.

    For the first time, it set meaningful and achievable targets to help us decarbonise. It's a model that has been adopted all over the world and it has been a great success.

    And in Government, Liberal Democrats ensured Britain met the early targets from the Act, and kept future targets ambitious.

    The biggest Lib Dem successes came on renewables and European co-operation

    We more than trebled investment in renewable electricity. We turned Britain's off-shore wind industry into the world leader, with policies that have helped reduce dramatically the cost of green power.
