London Climate Action Week starts tomorrow! It’s been running since 2019 and is centred around communities and climate specialists coming together to come up with new and creative ways to achieve Net zero.
Net zero means achieving a balance between the greenhouse gases put into the atmosphere and those taken out.
To mark London Climate Action Week here’s a small quiz to test yourself, and get you in the mood for setting a small challenge to save energy and CO2.
So, which gases are Greenhouse Gases?
B: Water vapour
Answer: All of the above
The UK plans to be the first major economy to reach Net zero, but by which year exactly have they committed to achieve this?
This week is also really important due to the delay of COP26 Climate talks, now due to happen in November of this year. Which city will host the COP26 climate talks in November 2021?
Do you know what the hottest year on record is?
Given this, what should we prioritise when trying to help the UK get to Net Zero, what is the biggest source of air pollution in the UK?
A: power stations
How can we support London Climate Action Week from around the UK?
I’m going to set myself a few challenges to support London Climate Action Week!
I don’t drive so avoiding transport is easy enough for me - I tend to walk everywhere. So my challenge is going to be not ordering anything online, and I’m also going to try buying in season, as well as local produce to avoid increasing my carbon footprint.
I’m also going to try to go vegan for the week ( a big deal for me because I shall have to kiss goodbye to the cheese).
Who’s joining me? What can you do this week to help fight climate change?
