We know the challenge ahead of us in ensuring that we do not reach 1.5 C. The low carbon energy transition is so important. Now we need to ensure that our energy efficiency and renewable energy policies are giving us the right signals. This week’s selection of posts should give you some inspiration but also show some of the challenges ahead. Particularly look at the last post from EiD.  We definitely have to be deliberate, organised and focused in our way forward. Please let us know your views.

Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) was an English social reformer and statistician, and the founder of modern nursing. During the Crimean War she organised care for wounded soldiers, including my great-grandfather. She provides an important thought for all of us this week: “Were there none who were discontented with what they have, the world would never reach anything better.”
