Zero Carbon Britain: Rethinking the Future
[BGO001]
£14.95

Zero Carbon Britain: Rethinking the Future draws on the Centre  for Alternative Technology's 40 years of experience  to create technically viable future scenarios. We bring together the latest knowledge from a wide range of disciplines to explore synergies that create employment, increase wellbeing, have a positive impact on the economy , and future-proof us for the challenge of the 21st century. 

 

Here we integrate new research in two key areas - 'keeping the lights on' with a variable renewable energy supply, and 'feeding ourselves properly' on a low carbon diet. By combining cutting edge technology with a smart approach to agriculture and land use, energy supply and demand, buildings and transport, we show that it is possible for the UK to meet the challenge of climate change and to acknowledge our responsibility as a long-industrialised nation to set the pace. 

 

"I strongly recommend the new Zero Carbon Britain report and trust that it will lead to serious and effective action"

Sir John Houghton

Former Co-chair of the Intergovermental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

Former Director General of the Met Office and founder of the Hadley Centre

 

"The challenge is to resolve the growing disconnect between what scientists tell us is needed and what policymakers tell us is possible. By setting out what a low carbon world would look like, Zero Carbon Britain shows that the solutions to our problems do exist and that all is needed is the political will to implement them."

Joan Walley MP

Chair of the Environmental Audit Select Committee

Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Climate Change Group
