Community power needed to combat carbon emissions

Community power needed to combat carbon emissions
Community power should be harnessed by the government to tackle climate change, according to former government scientific advisor Sir David King.

Writing in the Daily Telegraph, Sir David called for the government to complement large scale projects with small-scale low-tech schemes.

He said: "If we are serious about tackling climate change we need to utilise the full range of solutions. The government has overlooked one of its most valuable resources in the fight against climate change: communities."

Small simple actions which could be carried out by groups across the country could also create significant changes.

Sir David added: "If all the houses in the UK without cavity wall insulation had it installed, the energy saved could heat one million homes each year."

Earlier this month, Sir David said that the vast amounts of money being spent on particle physics and astronomy would be better used developing solutions for climate change.
