Auckland mayor discusses climate change emergency

From Morning Report, 7:24 am on 12 June 2019

Activists are hoping the Auckland Council will make real significant change after it voted yesterday to declare a climate change emergency.

All councillors supported the declaration. But several said the council doesn't have a handle on the scale of the challenge and it will need to make major, concrete changes if the declaration is to be meaningful.

The Mayor of Auckland is Phil Goff. He talks to Corin Dann.
