How are we going to save the planet?

Todays report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) makes chilling reading. We have been kicking this into the long grass for far too long now and pretending that it isn't happening.

BBC Report - Final call to save the world from 'climate catastrophe'

I really do wonder what we can do both individually and collectively to avert this threatened disaster? Weather patterns and the seasons have undoubtedly changed in my lifetime, which is a mere pin prick in the history of our planet.

Aside from climate change deniers there are far too many people with vested interests at stake. It also seems the climate scientists had very tough negotiations with politicians more concerned with economies and living standards.

Whether we like it or not it seems to me that we will very soon have to make significant changes to our lifestyles, and may no longer be able to take travel and food from far flung countries for granted.

Or will we just carry on as normal and hope it doesn't happen?
