I just signed up for 10:10, both as an individual and as a company (Mimimyne. 10:10 is an ambitious project to unite every sector of British society behind one simple idea: that by working together we can achieve a 10% cut in the UKâs carbon emissions in 2010.
Cutting 10% in one year is a bold target, but for most of us itâs an achievable one, and is in line with what scientists say we need over the next 18 months. We now know for certain that unless we act quickly to reduce our use of dirty fossil fuels, humanity will face terrible problems in the years to come. Politicians have so far failed to do what needs to be done, so itâs time for ordinary people to step in and show that weâre ready to defend our childrenâs futures. Itâs now or never for the climate.
