Editor: This article shows the need for a change in the way people survive and find satisfaction in their lives.  At the very least governments should be encouraging jobs in producing alternative/sustainable energy.  The article shows a misunderstanding of the effects of fracked gas which is a greenhouse gas contributing to global climate change. The damaging effects of fracking, pipeline building and ultimate burning of the gas on the environment and climate are overlooked.)

During the San Francisco Global Climate Action Summit, the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) announced its support for a declaration to create zero-emissions cities by 2030.

According to the ITF’s General Secretary Stephen Cotton, “The ITF and its affiliates are ready to support the declaration in real and tangible ways. We recognise that if we act now and act together, dangerous climate change can be averted. That’s why the ITF is here at GCAS making the case for massively expanding public transport now.”
