The Energy Crisis is Posing Another Threat to Sustainability: Nuclear Power

The Energy Crisis is Posing Another Threat to Sustainability: Nuclear Power

Despite the better efforts of many organisations and individuals around the country, the energy crisis is continuing to intensify and bear down on countless households and businesses. Just last week, the country’s energy bosses warned MPs that fuel poverty – or, in other words, the inability to afford to heat and light one’s home – could impact as much as 40% of the population come winter.

Don't Look Up, and Other Wake Up Calls from Hollywood

Signs of the climate crisis are closing in. More than ever before – not to mention faster than ever before – the general public is coming round to the idea that the earth really is entering into a state of true peril, and that change is not happening fast enough.

Russia, Ukraine, and the Impact on Energy and the Environment

Russia, Ukraine, and the Impact on Energy and the Environment

Since late February, the eyes of the world have been trained on Ukraine. What started as a palpable tension – a political arm wrestle between President Vladimir Putin and a perceived threat from the former soviet republic – escalated throughout the early months of 2022 and culminated in a full-scale invasion. The largest of its kind within Europe since World War II.

The Earth Shot Prize: Repairing Our Planet

So often, sustainability discussions centre on some of the most basic topics imaginable. The basic elements of water, air, fire and earth – our ability to eat – and, ultimately, survival. The survival of animals, plants, of the planet and, of course, the human race.

5 Key Points from the COP26 Glasgow Climate Change Conference

5 Key Points from the COP26 Glasgow Climate Change Conference

Calls for action are reaching a boiling point. COP26 aside, the closing months of 2021 – and of one momentously taxing period for the global population – have brought a renewed sense of urgency to the table, and an undeniable sense that the final curtain is preparing to draw itself across our hope for a healthier, safer future. 

The Energy Price Hike and Fuel Poverty

The Energy Price Hike and Fuel Poverty

It comes as a stark warning after almost two years’ worth of disruptions, complications and setbacks: an impending increase as high as 30% to our household energy bills on the cards for millions across the country.

While the anticipated time of arrival for this price hike remains somewhat vague – many reports see the spring of 2022 on the horizon – it feels even more immediate in light of the fact that wholesale gas prices have already skyrocketed, and led to the immediate collapse of a number of smaller energy firms.  The volatility is set to continue, with more energy suppliers at risk – and, of course, many more households being pushed to the edge by the devastatingly high cost of power and heat.

Past, Present and Future, as According to the IPCC’s Report on Climate Change

Past, Present and Future, as According to the IPCC’s Report on Climate Change

It has been little over a week since the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released its pivotal report on the true extent of global climate change. All at once, the panel’s findings were both predictable and shocking; a stark look at what we all knew was coming, and outcomes that seemed, for the past few years, to be far more remote than they really are.

The Green Energy Suppliers Protesting a Proposed Surcharge For Nuclear Power

The Green Energy Suppliers Protesting a Proposed Surcharge For Nuclear Power

Nuclear energy is no stranger to the ‘grey area’.  On the one hand, it represents a statistical dream for those looking to marry sustainability with modern life; capable of maintaining a continuously high output more than capable of meeting the needs of thousands – all at a lower cost than coal or gas, and without any of the harmful consequences of carbon emissions – poses it as something of an ideal solution.

Carbon Tax: An Overview

Carbon Tax: An Overview

Any discussion on climate change – whether it takes place between world leaders, economists, activists or anyone else – boils down to CO2, and the various ways we can work to mitigate its production. The climate crisis is fuelled by many different factors and harmful emissions but, CO2 has rightfully taken a central role in both our concerns and, and our efforts.
