Manchester Climate Change “Agency” has had a long long search for a chair for the ‘partnership’ of organisations that are allegedly helping Manchester become zero carbon by 2038.
They’ve finally announced (1) the appointment of someone from … Arup.
The announcement is of course silent on the inconvenient fact that the city burned a quarter of its carbon budget for the entire 21st century in the last two years alone. Wouldn’t be good to spoil the mood music on day one, would it?
(1) A couple of hours ago CEM put up a post saying no chair had been appointed and that the agency was (instead) looking for a director. The second half is still correct, minus the “instead”. We (specifically Marc Hudson) got it wrong, and apologise for the error.
