A collection of climate advocates recently sued the council and AT, accusing them of failing to comply with the council’s own climate plans. And the judgment could have far-reaching implications, says The Spinoff. The council’s promises to do a lot about climate change, appear to be in conflict with the Regional Land Transport Plan’s promise to do almost nothing about climate change. The RLTP will either raise carbon emissions from transport, or perhaps reduce them by 1% – and that’s concerning given transport accounts for 43.6% of Auckland’s emissions.
