Passionate, Fact-Driven, Optimistic: Young Climate Leaders Give Reason for Hope

When faced with daily doses of tragedy – volcanoes, heat waves, wildfires, school shootings, corrupt international political networks, and the consequences of extremism – it is too easy to ignore the longer-term good news. For one, long-term trends are not as bad as they seem. For another, a new generation of leaders gives reason for hope. Generations Y and Z are spawning torch-bearers with compassion and conviction, driven by purpose, facts, and optimism.

Build more Runways, Electric Aircraft are Coming

Last month, merely 28 years after the UK government first agreed to expand capacity in the South-East of England, Theresa May’s cabinet approved building a third runway at Europe’s busiest airport, London-Heathrow, by 2026. The backlash is as predictable as the anti-air travel activism is repetitive. Undoubtedly, blockades will re-emerge until another government takes the reins from the current, and another round of consultations (and consultants) again comes to the same conclusion: air travel is beneficial to a country’s economy and society.

How to Make Yourself Energy Storage Ready

We all know that the solar industry, particularly in the UK has lost a significant number of jobs in the last nine months. We also know that energy storage is the hottest of hot topics at present, and a sector predicted to see substantial growth. However, as I’ve written before, the number of jobs available in the storage sector doesn’t come close to the number of solar jobs lost. Demand outstrips supply. What is more many of the jobs lost to solar do not lend themselves to transfer to the storage sector, for an obvious example think roofer.
