My local counsellor, living up to the Hicksville climate-denialist image in this Guardian article:

'Wollondilly shire councillor Simon Landow, a former candidate for Liberal preselection, he replied to say it was not the council’s role.

“The term ‘climate emergancy’ (sic) … is very misleading to my residents of Wollondilly,” Landow wrote.

“I respect your view to have an opinion on the theory that man is causing catastrophic global warming.

“I would like you to respect my view that there is none, and I won’t be deviating from a stance thats is filled with so may (sic) flaws and misconceptions.”'
