We stand at an important point in history.
We are the first generation to know how much damage we are doing to our environment & the last to have a chance to do something about it.
Everything we do needs energy, and since the industrial revolution, this has come mainly from fossil fuels. First coal and then more recently, oil and gas, but burning these fuels has come at a price.
The carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere has caused the fastest warming in global temperatures ever seen.
The Paris Climate Change Agreement set legally binding targets to keep global warming levels to less than 2°C above pre-industrial levels.
This means we need to change the way we generate our power.
