Climate change is an existential threat and time to tackle it is rapidly running out. In light of this, the UK and Scottish Governments have both declared a climate emergency. We are now into a make-or-break decade of climate action.
While governments have a role to play in creating the right policy conditions to allow businesses, local authorities and individuals to cut greenhouse gas emissions, we as individuals can make changes to cut emissions – after all, it is the consumption of the 7.9 billion people on the planet that leads to these emissions.
In tonight’s talk I will show evidence of how the climate change is changing, outline the adverse impacts of climate change, and set out the urgency required in our response. I then outline where cuts in greenhouse gas emissions can be made, and the changes we can make to our everyday lives to reduce our climate impact.
