We now have the initial results of BC’s Climate Leadership Plan survey and according to a news release from the Environment Ministry they show 92% of participants agree that climate change is a serious issue.
The survey and accompanying discussion paper were designed to bring forward British Columbians ideas and values to help form a new climate action plan.
It’s noted that almost half of the survey respondents said the cost of climate change should be considered when making important decisions.
Meantime, a change in federal government leadership following the results of last month’s election continues to fuel more climate change debate.
In our discussion at the end of last week about a new economic study by Clean Energy Canada, we asked Executive Director Merran Smith about that:
A draft of the new BC Climate Leadership Plan will be released next month for public comment, and the Province is then scheduled to release the final plan in the spring of next year.
