Positive changes you can make for sustainable living.

Hello <<First Name>>,

A special report by scientists this week reminded us how urgent it is to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

The IPCC report stressed the huge benefits of keeping temperatures below 1.5C of warming for people, economies and nature.

Unfortunately, global temperatures are set to sail past this 1.5C target by 2040 or possibly as early as 2030! This means that urgent action by all of us is required to keep within ‘safe’ limits of global warming.

On Monday, I had the pleasure of doing back-to-back media interviews to explain the implications of this report and most importantly what we can all do to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.

Below we have included a link to One Home’s article on the top five tips to combat climate change, which I hope is useful.

Finally, it is always hard to strike the right balance between highlighting just how much danger we are in with the opportunities for hope, particularly the solutions that clean technology can bring.

Please have a listen to some of the interviews, chat to your friends about this subject, and any feedback or suggestions are welcome.

Best wishes

Angela Terry MSc MEI

How can we minimise damage to buildings from flooding?

By making simple design changes to traditional construction, there are several things that can be done to new and existing homes so that if a flood was to occur, this damage would be significantly limited. These changes will have significant benefit to the home owners for decades to come.
