Proof that there are some decent Tories out there, and they aren’t all climate-deniers!: Norfolk County Council (Tory-run) unanimously vote that there is a ‘Climate Emergency’

The motion came to Norfolk County Council on Monday. It included this:
‘This Council… urges all residents of Norfolk, including Members of Norfolk County Council, to reduce their carbon footprint, for instance, in the manner suggested by the current 10:10 campaign’
The Green Party amendment clause was:
‘recognises that there is a Climate Emergency and write to the Prime Minister to call for the Government to do everything possible to each a lasting agreement at the Copenhagen Climate Summit’, and was passed.
This I believe was the first instance of a Tory-run council using the words ‘climate emergency’ and was carried unanimously in the meeting.
