Social list Bocholt demands: Bocholt should proclaim the climate emergency

Social list Bocholt calls: Bocholt should proclaim the climate emergency The voters community Social list Bocholt wants that the advice of the city Bocholt the example of Konstanz and many other municipalities like last Kleve following and the climatic emergency calls out. For this purpose, the voter community on Monday has submitted to Mayor Peter Nebelo a corresponding citizen application, which has the content that the city council should decide: "The mayor of the city Bocholt calls the climate emergency (climate emergency is a symbolic term without legal basis). The City Council wants to meet Bocholt as a climate municipality and its diverse tasks and the development of inhabitants. In order to make this sustainable and climate-friendly, the city council passed the following resolution: The city of Bocholt- declares the climate emergency and recognizes the mitigation of the climate crisis and its serious consequences as a task of the highest priority.- recognizes that the measures and planning so far are insufficient to limit global warming to 2050 to the targeted 1,5 degrees Celsius.- now takes into account the impact on the climate in any decision. Those solutions are preferred that take the greatest possible account of climate, environmental and species protection and mitigate climate change and its consequences. For this purpose, the best options for climate, environmental and species protection should be presented and evaluated on the basis of the best possible solution for all proposals for a resolution. - calls on the mayor to report annually to the city council and the public on progress and difficulties in reducing emissions and draw conclusions from this. - calls on other municipalities, the federal states and the Federal Republic of Germany to follow the example of Constance, Klever and Bocholt and declare the climate emergency. In particular, he draws the attention of the federal and state governments to the fact that full compliance with the climate protection targets at the municipal level is not yet possible under the current framework conditions. Only a complete dismantling of existing subsidies for fossil fuels, a socially equitable CO2 pricing, a fundamentally changed transport policy and a climate protection compliant promotion of social housing would provide the much needed foundation here.- also calls on the municipal investment companies / city daughters, the above apply the above-mentioned procedures and increasingly deal with opportunities in climate protection. The city council will be reported before the end of the year. In addition, the climate target in Bocholt is adapted to the Paris climate targets. This means a far-reaching climate neutrality (0,3t / person) before the year 2035. The current climate measures are based on this goal and will be supplemented accordingly. "Councilor Bärbel Sauer and Torsten Wollberg, environmental policy spokesman of the voters community, hope for broad support of all council groups and lone fighters and explain:" Almost every week, hundreds of thousands of people throughout Germany demonstrate in the Fridays- for future movement against the climate and environmental policy of the Federal Government. Also in Bocholt demonstrated recently repeated and impressive young people in the city center. The aim of the movement is that the Bundestag and the Federal Government should immediately adopt effective measures and enforce them consistently, so that the impending climate catastrophe can be averted. The students are expressing what we all should be aware of: It is high time to act. "The warming of the earth must be limited, the world community in Paris 2015 has defined a clear target corridor. This international treaty must now also be implemented at the municipal level, because the "climate emergency is bitter reality": death, displacement and hunger - consequences of climate change, such as the new, now 25. Even if Bocholt is a climate municipality, the current climate goals and measures of the city of Bocholt are far from sufficient to implement the Paris Agreement on Climate Change at the local level. Accordingly, the city's efforts to protect the climate must be accelerated. Konstanz and many other cities such as the neighboring town of Kleve make it vor.Ratsfraktion Bärbel Sauer and Torsten Wollberg hope to broad approval of their citizenship application. [...]
