‘Rethinking the Future’ is the latest report from the Centre for Alternative Technology’s Zero Carbon Britain project. It shows how, if we respond with the urgency that climate science demands, it would be quite possible to rapidly reduce UK carbon emissions to net zero over the next fifteen years.
Closing the gap between current ‘politics as usual’ and what is physically necessary to address climate change will require cross-sector collaboration and public engagement, framed by robust international agreements to foster high-level all-party political commitment. Zero Carbon Britain: Rethinking the Future provides a positive and technically feasible future scenario that aims to stimulate debate and catalyse action across all parts of society. Through this project, the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) hopes to inform, inspire and enable contemporary society to embrace the changes required to rethink the future.
The full report is available online here along with a range of other resources that will be of interest to Scottish Communities CAN members.
