The Paris Climate Agreement is a commitment to “holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels,” to avoid unacceptable risks to humanity. To reach this goal, carbon emissions must peak by the year by 2020 at the latest – during the next term of Council.
On a scale of 1 – 10, what is your level of concern about climate change, with 10 being the highest?
What will you do to reduce local carbon dioxide emissions and increase Greater Sudbury’s resilience to climate change in our natural and built environment?
|Rob Franceschini||Work with my fellow councilors to find ways to reduce carbon Dioxide emissions working with industry helping them identify ways to reduce there imissions|
|Kyle McCall||Encourage more active modes of transportation reducing our need to for frequent trips by car, and ensuring local businesses and homeowners are aware of incentive programs and other initiatives available to them to reduce their carbon footprints.|
|Al Sizer (incumbent)||I am committed to continuing the initiative of a complete street philosophy with an emphasis on public transit and alternative means of transportation. Incentives that were just recently canceled by the Provincial government providing subsidies to retro-fit homes reducing their use of fossil fuels; we must lobby the provincial government to restore those grants and subsidies. As a member of the Planning Committee, I will continue to work within the guidelines prescribed by the Provincial Policy Statement and the City's Official Plan to encourage development with the measures to encourage development with the least impact on the environment.|
