Companies and governments are finally changing their mindset on fossil fuel industries.

The same can be said for the growth of renewable energy, a sector now thriving across the world. Solar energy is seen as the future; over in Trump’s America, despite his protestations, more people now work in solar than coal, oil and gas combined. It employs 43% of people working in energy jobs, compared to 23% fossil fuels. Solar installers put up solar panels in the USA every 2.5 minutes.

One man to thank for the solar industry boom is Jonathan Waxman, a UK wind farm developer who was recently part of the effort to get solar electricity supplied to homes across Africa. He featured in the documentary, praising the transition to renewable energy.

On the political scene, significant progress has been made with the Paris Climate Agreement of 2015.

For the first time, almost all the nations on Earth agreed to lower emissions and stabilise global temperature. However, back home in the UK, some senior figures believe there are still not enough climate change policies being proposed by the government, and the subject is not sufficiently high on the political agenda.

Simpson urges politicians to do more and act now in the face of this crisis.

Interview with Al Gore

In the race to fixing our planet, there are many key players. However, nobody is more central to this issue than former US Vice President, Al Gore.

After being the Vice President under President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 2001, and losing his fight to become the President of the United States in 2000 (in a very tight, and controversial fight), he became a full time climate change activist – winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.


However, perhaps his most notable work is the 2006 documentary ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, the Academy Award-winning documentary educating the public about climate change – and giving some very worrying scientific predictions about the direction of the planet.

Now, over a decade later and after having brought almost every country together to achieve the Paris Agreement, Al Gore returns with the follow-up: An Inconvenient Sequel – Truth To Power.…
