Chaos beckons in the absence of leadership
We face a very stark choice. Continue with business as usual, and allow the world to become an "immense pile of filth", or change our behaviour and allow future generations to inherit a planet capable of sustaining life.
But for that to happen, we need political leadership, something which this Government has so far failed to deliver.
There has been no concerted effort made to reduce energy consumption in our public building stock, despite the financial and environmental savings which would accrue. Nor has there been a real attempt to get people out of their cars and onto public transport.
