The Climate Emergency In Scotland - What Can We Do About It?

About The Climate Emergency In Scotland - What Can We Do About It?

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.
