Sophie Handford on Climate Strike
November 12, 2019
Kapiti Environment - Kapiti Councillor Sophie Handford addresses climate change in a video #Strike4Climate

Kapiti Councillor Sophie Handford is continuing to put out the message for urgent action on climate change. In a recently released video Sophie says the clock is ticking and action must be taken now.
Sophie addressed a huge crowd outside Parliament saying, "We have power together and I think we need to use that power."
It seems the biggest struggle is changing the mindset of many politicians who are either in denial of climate change reality or who are far too slow to act.
Sophie says there are so many people out there not only fighting for their future but they are also fighting for their now.
"Like the people in the Pacific Islands. The water is literally at their doorsteps knocking."
Sophie and Climate Strike are highlighting the urgency required for action.
"We don't have long. It was 11 years, now 10 and it will be come 9 and it will eventually become a month. I'm just really afraid we will get to that point and be like, we wasted so much time."

"Like the people in the Pacific Islands. The water is literally at their doorsteps knocking." rnrnReally? I'm from Fiji and now live in NZ. Don't know what you are talking about! Water comes up sometimes when there are storms, its been happening for thousands of years. Perhaps you should work on our political relationship with Fiji instead of talking not truth.
