COUNCILLORS want to spend £1m on fighting climate change.
The Lib Dem group on Kirklees Council wants to invest in renewable energy and hydroelectricity.
The party’s environment spokeswoman, Clr Ann Denham, said: “Sometimes it feels like tackling climate change is a problem and we are powerless to act.
“I believe we can make a massive difference locally by making money available to fund projects which will reduce the amount of carbon emissions.
“If we want to stop climate change it will take action.”
The proposal will be debated at the annual budget meeting next week.
