Coming soon to a cinema near you (fingers crossed)

Last Thursday the All Parliamentary Party Climate Change Group in conjunction with the German Embassy screened “The 4th Revolution: Energy Autonomy” by Carl-A. Fletcher. The film presents a vision of a world powered entirely by renewable energy, accessible to everyone irrespective of geographic location or wealth. This is done by introducing the viewer to exemplar projects across the planet alongside listening to prominent players in the energy market.

Fletcher’s movie is thought provoking and leaves us asking why are we not striving for this wholly achievable future in the UK. That was certainly the question on many people’s lips at the closing Q&A session. Most were stunned by the impassioned words of Prof. Dr. Olav Hohmeyer as he presented Germans newly comissioned report for 100% renewable by 2050. If the Germans can do it without pandering to the persuasive nuclear lobby groups, then why shouldn’t we.
