So far 245 local authorities in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have declared a climate emergency. And, these represent over 70% of the population! 149 of these have set a target of reaching zero emissions by 2030 or earlier. “It is a cross-party movement, illustrated by taking a look at the political control of the councils that have declared a climate emergency,” wrote Climateemergency.uk in their newsletter. They found that 80 Councils had no overall political control, 75 Labour, 60 Conservative, 22 Liberal Democrats, 4 Independent, and 1 Plaid Cymru. (SNP are minority lead on some of the NOC Councils). ​ Why a citizens' assembly? Parliaments and governments around the world
