Since the Stern Report was realised on Monday, there has been a lot of talk about tackling climate change. It feels as if the masses have finally reached a consensus and are saying, ‘Right it’s official, so what do we do now?’.

I first heard about climate change in 1987 when it was treated as more of a scientific phenomenon than a social problem. Despite remembering that it was widely reported that if we didn’t cut emissions and CFCs then the planet would heat up and cause a few problems, here we are 20 years later and as far as I can see not much has changed. OK, we’ve got rid of CFCs that was quite a simple problem to tackle in comparison to changing the planet’s energy consumption habits.
