PE­TI­TION FOR CLI­MATE AC­TION

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FRONT PAGE -

A pe­ti­tion signed by hun­dreds of Is­lan­ders is call­ing for the P.E.I. gov­ern­ment to im­ple­ment a new pro­vin­cial cli­mate change ac­tion plan. A to­tal of 409 Is­lan­ders signed the pe­ti­tion, which was tabled in the leg­is­la­ture this week. The pe­ti­tion notes the province’s last work on this is­sue was a strat­egy for “re­duc­ing the im­pacts of global warm­ing,” pub­lished in Novem­ber 2008, not­ing this re­port is now out of date. It fur­ther notes the UN’s cli­mate change re­port warned the plant is be­com­ing dan­ger­ously close to an ex­treme, ir­re­versible cli­mate change cri­sis. “We the un­der­signed call on pro­vin­cial lead­ers to act now to cre­ate and im­ple­ment a new pro­vin­cial cli­mate change ac­tion plan as soon as pos­si­ble.”
