Hi admin - wondering why this post 'lounged' when the Heathrow consultation one wasn't?

Glad to see Southwark Council committing to going carbon neutral by 2030 - 2decades earlier than previously planned so great news!

Shame it was lounged on here as a post given this is everyone’s futures at stake (unless ED manages to survive in a bubble). Anyway - thats my personal grump out of the way.

I totally agree. Amazing that our borough took this step, and this should totally be unlounged.

It is wonderful news. However, this forum is called East Dulwich Forum. This fabulous and important thread is not specific to East Dulwich, therefore is in the lounge. That's the logic that made sense to me. Well done everyone who worked for this. Now let's see the councillors using public transport.

But...East Dulwich is in Southwark. Southwark is East Dulwich’s borough. The new actions being taken will directly effect all of East Dulwich as well as benefitting the wider community. Also, there are threads all over the place about Peckham.....

I don’t agree with you.

Seconded - I don't see the same logic being applied to other trans-boundary threads e.g'Aircraft noise'; 'Parking Zone - 'Peckham West'; 'Brown bin collection - Council starting to charge?'; 'Ultra Low Emission Zone – extension of scheme October 2021'; 'Peckham rye adventure playground' etc etc etc.

Hi Peckham Rose. I use public transport and walk as do most of the Councillors. Several Councillors cycle.

How is the council going to police the increasing amount of burning of wood?

For anyone genuinely interested in learning more about the climate issues we are facing, I can highly recommend this book:

The Uninhabitable Earth: A Story of the Future Hardcover by David Wallace-Wells

Thanks for posting.

Ps - vote in parliament tomorrow. Let’s see if our MPs have the guts to vote to declare a national climate emergency.
