We have all contributed to climate change, through the lifestyles we lead and enjoy; we have an opportunity, however, to influence the amount of future climate change to which we adapt. The one choice we don’t have is a no climate change future. In this video, Alice Bows-Larkin, talks about ways to mitigate a 4 degree C future, by decarbonizing our energy pathways, by focusing on energy efficiency and energy conservation, as supply side infrastructure innovations will take time. We need to act on both immediately. It is about the need to do things differently, it is not about incremental change, we need transformative change, and there is no time like the present to act.
