The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) climate report is out and, well, it’s terrifying. Described as a ‘code red for humanity‘, it serves as yet another wake-up call to governments to take immediate action. While we continue to wait for them to do so, there are things we, as architects and building professionals, can do. One of the most important steps is to never specify gas in a project again, and instead switch to a mix of solar and 100% certified GreenPower. The more fossil fuels we burn, the worse this crisis is going to get. The report is confronting, but it details what can be done to tackle the crisis if we act now. Everyone can play a small part.
