BS ALERT
Mr Cull, who is on the subcommittee, said the targets were partly about following direction from central government and also about being responsible in the face of climate change.

DCC aims to reduce emissions
By Vaughan Elder
A target to reduce Dunedin City Council’s emissions 5% by 2018-19 is partly about setting a good example, Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull says. The council’s draft emissions management and reduction plan was presented to members of the sustainability audit subcommittee last week at its first meeting.

DCC emissions (via ODT)
• The council emits 30,696 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents (tCO2e) per year, roughly equivalent to the yearly emissions from 6500 passenger vehicles.
• That equates to 248 kgCO2e per resident and 560 kgCO2e per rateable property.
• Of the council’s emissions 23,039 tCO2e, or 75%, is from landfilled waste.
• The council’s draft emission target aims for an overall reduction of 5% by 2018 19 and a 20% reduction in non landfill emissions.

The Sustainability Audit Subcommittee comprises:
Janet Stephenson (Chairperson), Mayor Dave Cull, Councillors David Benson-Pope and Jinty MacTavish, Gael Ferguson and Brett Tomkins —see previous post and comments Link

U.N. Official Reveals Real Reason Behind Warming Scare
Economic Systems: The alarmists keep telling us their concern about global warming is all about man’s stewardship of the environment. But we know that’s not true. A United Nations official has now confirmed this. At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

Daaave Cull keeps SPENDING on #impulse

…. “impulse” is the polite word for CRAP

The Laughing Stock With The Ermine, Clanking Gold Chains And Camel Shackles looks more and more RIDICULOUS as the Mayor of Dunedin.

There are screeds and screeds of cartoons to draw for —
Daaave’s definition of SUSTAINABILITY : Read STADIUM.

Try your very hardest not to laugh at the soft-arsed plonker – do you know what ANOTHER subcommittee costs to run, in terms of councillor, staff and politically appointed rank outsider* time and pay. It’s an outrage – and, for WHAT.

Daaave IS the “lunatic fringe”.
NEWS: He has a date with public stocks in the Octagon. Or we do it cleanly, and VOTE HIM OUT next election. Though how many of us can’t wait and would want to drive a bus erratically.
