SIR - It is welcome that some County Councillors are calling for a climate emergency to be declared in Worcestershire.

The idea that a report should be ready in March 2020 however seems more like business as usual.

Also while 100 big companies are responsible for 70% of all emissions of greenhouse gases the impact one council can have will be limited.

What is needed is democratic public ownership of the polluting firms to put our environment before profit.
