On the 24th July, the Liberal Democrats put forward a motion to East Herts District Council to declare a Climate Emergency in East Herts.
The Conservative Party on the council heavily amended our motion. They removed all reference to 'climate emergency' and replaced it with 'climate change' and removed many of the concrete actions. By this, the Tories at EHDC have declared that they do not consider climate change an emergency and showed that they do not understand or acknowledge the seriousness of the situation. The Liberal Democrats are disappointed that we will not be joining 176 other councils in declaring a climate emergency.
