The Speed We Respond to Climate Change

What could seriously help deal with climate changing emissions but only moves at 89 metres a day ? One answer is Negawatts.  Instead of paying utilities to build more power stations to meet rising demand, or exhorting consumers to use less, we pay them for saving energy. The idea was first proven at least as long ago as 1990, in Kiel, Germany.  Today (22 May 2013) it was announced that the UK Government has finally accepted it as policy.  Partly at least.  By my reckoning that’s 23 years for a good idea to travel 755 km, or about 33 km a year, or 89 metres a day … a speed of 0.004km/hr.
