As we have delayed so long and are still so slow to take action that is capable of producing meaningful change, we need to already aim beyond zero emissions but be working on carbon sequestration - reversing the problem (already in action (2040:The Regeneration) in other jurisdictions whilst also supported by crowd funding).
The evidence for the most effective methods for this is dynamic so there is a need for agility and a flexible and adaptable approach. This being said - kelp forest and sea grass expansion as well as offshore renewables are probably the methods rated most effective, which Jersey should consider immediately- particularly as the first two options could be incorporated into a biodiversity protection scheme (marine reserve) option - as highlighted by NTJ
Why the contribution is important
Jersey needs to work with what is available in Jersey - our unique environment is our best asset in relation to "turning the tide" on climate change. Protecting our marine environment in the process of tackling climate change would be transformative in helping us believe this change is possible and also beneficial.
