The report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) this week has provided a wake up call for the world at large. 

We can no longer continue to live as we have, particularly those of us who inhabit the wealthier countries. 

A huge reduction in carbon emissions will be necessary to stave off the worst aspects of the changing climate.

Environmental scientist and writer Cara Augustenborg addresses these issues and explains why she believes a better society is possible if we are all willing to do our bit.
