NEW HORIZONS: The recently approved council plan sets clearly defined targets for emission cuts for the first time.

It is, most would now say, a defining issue of our time. Government organisations around the world - including many councils - have declared a state of climate emergency. By 2030, temperatures may rise by more than 1 degree in Victoria - and annual temperatures are already up by an average of 1.5 degrees since the early 1960s. Droughts and storms may strike more often with less rainfall and harsher heatwaves.
