LinkedIn conversations on climate change

At the very least we all have to change our daily habits around work and home. We consume substantially less just by switching off equipment and lights when they are not being used. Applying a sort of OCD approach to these things, recycling and to every aspect of what we do around our lives is the way to do it. Unfortunately there's a lot to learn and not a lot of time to concentrate on doing all the little things differently. We have to teach our children to behave very differently from the way we have done - and still do - which means changing OUR habits now so they don't adopt them into their lives. It's got to be interleaved into education from the youngest age which means teachers need to be trained and schools need investment for inculcation of effective climate change behaviour. It would be useful if statutory bodies took a lead. It would be useful in the UK if the government forced local authorities to offer businesses the service of taking segregated waste from businesses for recycling. etc.
