WHAT is the actual cost of freezing ourselves in our air-conditioned offices and homes? Who actually pays the price for inefficient use of technology and energy that results in climate change? Is it just humans?

An estimated 100,000 people marched on the streets of Copenhagen on 12 Dec IF a bridge had a 50% chance of collapsing, would you cross it? I wouldn’t.

The current amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere stands at […]
