    Wellington Regional Council says the cost of inaction is too high when it comes to climate change

    Wellington Regional Council says the cost of inaction is too high when it comes to climate change


    Councillors have declared a climate emergency and agreed on an action plan to back it up.

    It includes a target of becoming carbon neutral by 2030.

    Councillor Roger Blakeley says three metres of sea level rise in the region will affect the properties of 12-thousand people, with a capitalised value of 8.6 billion dollars.

    He says it's a huge sum of money, and can't afford to continue on with business as usual.
