Every day humans are responsible for releasing 16 million tonnes of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere.
Every year each person in the UK releases 10 tonnes of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere stayed below 300 parts per million for millennia, despite ice ages and interglacial periods. As a result of human activity the levels are now over 415 ppm which is uncharted territory for the climate of our planet.
Cutting energy consumption and generating energy from renewable energy technologies is essential to cutting carbon emissions and reducing our impact on the climate.
