There are many that believe climate change isn't real, that it is created as a conspiracy to create jobs and a diversion from other government actions.
I personally am not one of these people. Whatever the exact details are the truth is that our climate is changing, we are an expanding population needing ever more resources to maintain our lifestyle. This is not a new subject and majority of the audience have heard all the arguments before so we need to think outside the box with new approaches and new tools.
This organisation seems to be addressing some of these issues with a range of courses aimed to convert the skeptics in your office or enable you to dissect the technical jargon surrounding renewables into more accessible chunks.
i am a non believer, i do believe that there is an agreed plan between Governments and many areas of business. we have always had changes in our weather it is normal. instead of raising taxes why dont the Government take action? they could ban all unneeded electrical machines like mobiles, i pods/pads laptops sky tv cd players etc. just think how much energy that would save. ban cars apart from those in rural areas. ban air flights other than for business use. ban food that can be produced in the uk from being imported. ban clothes from abroad as far as possible only produce goods in this country not import them. stop all day drinking, stop 24 hour tv switch street lights off, make it an offence for any business to leave lights and heating on when closed. scrap rules regarding minimum heat at work.
of course many of these will upset people but that is the point, if things are so bad then do these things. its like speeding only 6% of deaths on the road are caused by cars exceeding the speed limit.the rest by poor driving, poor roads badly maintained vehicles etc. to fix these will cost billions. speed cameras raise millions. they dont make us any safer but the government get money.
