GREEN SENIORS is affiliated to the National 
Pensioners’ Convention (http://npcuk.org/)  

Climate change motion below

 “ As part of our commitment to intergenerational solidarity, 
we call on  the National Pensioners’ Convention to campaign, 
with Unions, the TUC and relevant pressure groups for 
Government to plan for  immediate transition to a carbon zero
 economy, including: · support for wind, tidal and solar energy; 
· retrofit of public buildings to become carbon neutral · abandon
 fracking and the import of any fracked gas or tar sand oil · 
transfer fossil fuel subsidies to sustainable  energy generation ·
phase out of fossil fuel power. We note that · Keeping global 
warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius or below is essential if  human
civilisation is to be sustained. · The technology exists to make a 
 transition to a sustainable carbon neutral society, but this is 
 incompatible with high levels of inequality and personal 
 consumption.”
