Today, not tomorrow

According to the Government’s own projections, the UK is on course to miss its legally binding carbon budgets,
overrunning them by 10% in 2032. Worse still, those targets are not enough to avoid a

TIME IS THE CRITICAL FACTOR!

We have just twelve years from 2019 to avoid climate and ecological breakdown.
Or, as 16 year old Greta Thunberg says, “there is simply not enough time to wait for us
children to grow up and become the ones in charge”. WE ARE the current generation of
‘grown ups’ and we are engineers and investors and planners and landowners.
WE have everything at our disposal to take action now and change things today.
The Climate Emergency is really a CLIMATE CHOICE. The choice
to do everything in our power and capability to change what
we can, as fast as we can, or to do nothing.
