Ilkley climate change exhibition
An exhibition organised by Bradford Council is being held at Ilkley Library this week, providing home energy efficiency advice.
It will also give information on how climate change will affect the Bradford District and offer ways in which residents can reduce their greenhouse emissions, as well as tips on how to cut carbon footprints.
There will be additional information about the Climate Change Framework for Action.
The document outlines the council's target to cut carbon emissions, which contribute to climate change, by 40% by 2020.
Councillor Andrew Thornton, Bradford Council's Executive Member responsible for sustainability, said: "These sessions will help people find out more about climate change and how they can cut energy bills, while also playing a part in achieving the district’s carbon reduction targets."
Kate Stanley, Bradford Council's Environmental Awareness Officer, added: "Our emissions at the moment are about three million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent.
"That means everyone who lives in district needs to cut their carbon emissions by two tonnes. To make it easier to visualise, one tonne is the same as driving your car 3,000 miles or a long-haul trip to America on a plane."
The exhibition runs until Saturday 21 July and an advice day will be held on Wednesday 18 July from 10am until 4pm.
