The energy we consume creates carbon emissions that damage the planet through global warming. The Australian fires and Indonesian floods of 2020 were the consequence of 250 years of industry using toxic energy sources. With the UK committed to be carbon neutral by 2050, and all nations aiming to reduce greenhouse gasses by 40% by 2030.
