Prof. Sir David King

“Even if all CO2 emissions were halted overnight, global temperatures and sea levels would keep rising and heatwaves, droughts, storms and other impacts would keep intensifying for about 25 to 30 years. The future of our planet is in our hands. CGLN is spearheading the conversation to drive real change.”

“With every crisis comes opportunity – we must concretely shift the UK and the world to an economy underpinned by clean growth, creating both jobs and sustainable businesses. We need to act now, together, and not let climate change destroy our way of life. CGLN is a conduit for this.”
