I stopped and listened to them, before entering the Council Chamber in Winchester.
I am pleased to report that there was cross party support for the Liberal Democrat motion that the authority now treats tackling climate change as an emergency.
The authority will now put urgent action plans in place to address the issue, both within the County Council and for everyone living in Hampshire.
Everyone seems to agree just how real the problem of accelerated climate change is and that we are facing the possibility of extinction as the planet dies.
I am personally totally committed to taking action.
