ABSTRACT
The article discusses climate change, its implications for the future generations, and the energy strategy espoused by the Centre for Alternative Technology. According to the 2007 Fourth Assessment Report from the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change, earth's greenhouse gas levels have increased since 1857, which means global warming will persist. The author elaborates on the ZeroCarbonBritain strategy which offers a national framework in addressing the climate challenge.
