We all notice changes to the local weather and at the back of our minds wonder whether it is linked to global warming. Climate change is the biggest threat we face, so big we prefer not to think about it. Have you noticed how most people are reluctant to talk about climate change? Try introducing the subject of climate change into conversation with friends and see how far you get. I think we are reluctant to talk about it because the issue is so huge it makes us feel helpless.

There are things we can do that make a real difference such as changing to a green electricity supplier. As more people demand green energy it will push the market to generate more energy from renewable sources. Switching to an affordable green supplier is quite easy to do online and gives you a warm feeling that you are doing something which makes a difference without turning heating on!
