Manchester City Council and #climate – flying staff to Edinburgh and Exeter after declaring “climate emergency” @XR_MCR

Extinction Rebellion Manchester are doing a protest about air quality on Great Ancoats St.

The City Council has released the usual nonsense about how concerned they are about climate change and how a climate subgroup has been set up (after significant resistance from the Council’s leadership, though they don’t mention that).

Yeah, look.  Since declaring a climate emergency in July 2019  the City Council has continued flying its staff to such hard to reach places as … Exeter and Edinburgh.

(the list goes on, btw)

Because, you know, leadership.


Btw – we know this not because the Council is being even minimally honest and transparent, but because of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
