The Future for Climate Change is Bleak.
At this time it seems that climate change is not a priority for all of the national leaders. The UK is trying to persuade Europe to lower its sights on energy saving and that may well mean that the UK itself will aim to reduce targets for our nation. In 2015 support for solar power was cut significantly by the UK government. Pretty well all energy schemes need subsidies to advance and continue. We seem to be set to expand nuclear power generation as a major contributor to Green Energy supply, at the expense of truly green energy systems. We could not disagree more with this policy since the evidence indicates that nuclear power is potentially very dangerous in the longer term and will reduce the momentum to develop clean energy efficiency.
Further it will certainly leave a legacy of needing overwhelming subsidies for generations to come, especially when clean-up is needed. In the worst case nuclear fission schemes could result in disastrous accidents such as we have already witnessed in Russia and Japan. Ironically, clean green energy would almost certainly satisfy our needs quicker than the construction of nuclear energy plants. Unfortunately we have boxed ourselves in by electing leaders whose motives are driven by personal and blinkered interests rather than national ones. Over the Pond things are just as bad, if not worse. The USA have elected a President who is a self declared Climate-change denier and has a record of unbelievable, foolhardy, irresponsible crass behaviour.
Why is it that at this time our democracies, of which we are proud, have resulted in the election of people who seem to behave like clowns, can be downright liars and who can do a U-turn on the head of a pin if it suits their own ends? Unless there are significant changes in education and policies the future for climate-change will certainly be bleak.

And in contrast something much lighter and topical:
